This is a thesis about ghosts. Ghosts, as I engage with them throughout the following pages, are not merely those entities that haunt the fringes of the human psyche; the uncanny encounters that, when they are spoken of, are endlessly qualified with the many different ways there are of saying "I don't believe in ghosts, but..." Ghosts, as I will argue, are materially constitutive of the world; they are the chair you sit on, the mass extinction event you are living through; they are the paper you hold in your hands and the thoughts you have as you read these words.
