The Anthropocene and its problems unveil and exacerbate some vulnerabilities of de¬mocratic theory and practice, particularly in their liberal version. Both liberal democracies’ failures and their most promising attempts at managing these problems expose them to po¬werful legitimacy challenges. The Anthropocene is thus for liberal democracies what Scylla and Carybdis were for Ulysses and his crew: a predicament whereby any direction ta¬¬ken will lead to serious difficulties and risks, and possibly to significant damages and los¬ses.
Keywords: Anthropocene, liberal democracies, challenges, vulnerabilities.
