A Lackadaisical Lexicon for Laggard Logophiles
SOLASTALGIA
[noun]
a neologism coined by the Australian philosopher Glenn Albrecht in 2003 with the first article published on this concept in 2005. It describes a form of psychic or existential distress caused by environmental change, such as mining or climate change. As opposed to nostalgia — the melancholia or homesickness experienced by individuals when separated from a loved home — “solastalgia” is the distress that is produced by environmental change impacting on people while they are directly connected to their home environment.
