Human intervention has led some academics to suggest we have now entered a new era of geological time, the Anthropocene. The label ‘Anthropocene’, for some, signals the shift from hopes of ‘saving nature’ and ‘solving’ problems, to living with crises and problems as our new and permanent condition. This article suggests the concept of ‘habit’ allows us to conceptualise ourselves in recursive relationship with the past and future, and with the world around us at all its scales. In other words, habit is a concept in keeping with the partial and paradoxical world we find ourselves in. A distinction is drawn however, between paradoxes that can be generative and paradoxes that lead to a double bind.
