The Ecological Citizen (eBook)
Selected Papers From The Peer-Reviewed, Ecocentric Journal, 2018 - 2019
Sobre o livro
A selection of papers published in the Ecological Citizen journal; an independent, peer-reviewed, free-to-access journal that provides a forum for inspiring and mobilizing discussion with an Earth-centred perspective. Each paper offers a perspective on ecocentric approaches to life. What does it mean to be ecocentric? Deep green, or ecocentric, is feeling that it is wrong for humans to have an unreasonably large, negative impact on the natural world such as causing other species to go extinct. An ecocentric view knows that this is a deeper wrong than just affecting the quality of life of other humans. An ecocentric view recognizes wrongs to the Earth and to the rest of life. This collection includes works from experts in the field covering topics including ecocentrism, the transformation of human life, dandelions, rivers and dams, religion and nature, animism and ecology, Thoreau and the environment, humpback whales, ocean health, the Sonoran Desert and the biodiversity crisis.
