ABSTRACT
The article discusses energy resources and its impact on modern society within the framework of anthropological studies, in response to a work by Tere Vadén and Antii Salminen about the correlation between energy and modernity. The author notes that Vadén and Salminen's call to include energy in the theorizing of modernity should be guided by works by anthropological theorist Leslie White. Production of modernities and deployment of fossil fuels should be viewed within White's theory
