This chapter deploys Haraway’s threefold characterization of the contemporary epoch as ‘Anthropocene’/ ‘Capitalocene’/‘Chthulucene’ as a lens through which to reflect upon the nature of the time assumed by mainstream Anthropocene discourse. The chapter argues that the mainstream Anthropocene discourse imposes a linear Eurocentric conception of time on a lively world of variegated temporalities, rhythms and movements. The chapter then reflects upon Capitalocene and Chthulucene temporalities and their respective implications for onto-epistemic in/justice and legal epistemology in an age of Anthropocene crisis.
