about this book

Deep Ecology offers a solution to the environmental crisis through a radical shift in human consciousness, a fundamental change in the way people think about their relationship with the environment. Instead of thinking of nature as a resource to be used for human needs, Deep Ecology argues that the true value of nature is intrinsic. Emerging in the 1980s as an influential philosophical, social, and political movement, Deep Ecology has shaped the views of leading environmental activists and policymakers from Vice President Gore to Dave Foreman of Earth First! This volume contains thirty-nine articles by the leading writers and thinkers in the field, offering a comprehensive array of perspectives on this new approach to environmentalism. Among the contributors are Thomas Berry, Fritjof Capra, Dave Foreman, Arne Naess, Gary Snyder, and Jerry Mander.
