While it is also relevant to address the Earth crisis using reformist approaches, this article analyzes a worse-case scenario. It deals with a post-disaster scenario that looks for ways out of a deeper environmental crisis or disaster. But this does not mean a scenario of a total global apocalypse. It addresses the topic in four steps: first, by stressing an importance of post-disaster scenarios between a mere reform and a total collapse; second, by analyzing the Western historical dialectic of enlightenment and capitalism; third, by formulating the non-Western dialectic as well as that of human civilization; and fourth, by expressing a social philosophical background and environmental alternatives present in the Global South.
