Editorial Reviews

Review

"Naess is well-known in the worldwide environmental movement and has helped to inspire the ecology movement...This volume presents Naess' reflections on the relevance of philosophy to the problems of the degradation of life conditions on Earth, and a rethinking of the relationship between man and nature." Sci Tech Book News

"Arne Naess, Norwegian editor of Inquiry for many years, launched ecophilosophy or 'deep ecology' two decades ago, and we are now fortunate to have an English summary of the Oslo philosopher's work....Naess is a pivotal figure in environmental ethics." Ethics

"...lots of good advice for activists...an important contribution to understanding the complexity and theoretical richness of deep ecology and the ideas of Arne Naess, its philosophical founder." David Orton, Capitalism Nature Socialism

Format: Paperback
In his book, Arne Naess brilliantly provides the philosophical basis for deep ecology. He uses reasonable arguments that resound with all aspects of life. In a time when the market economy is pervading more and more areas around the globe, a philosophy like Naess's that can help us reconnect with the bigger picture is much needed. I am finishing up a degree in environmental economics and from my first year in environmental studies, Arne Naess's ideas have been pivotal in the re-shaping of my relationship with the world. His philosophy has been cited time and time again by professors of different disciplines and this book is required reading in many courses. This book is not too context specific and can be understood by any audience. It is highly recommended for the reader interested in philosophy, ecology, environmentalism, and life in general.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read the book 15 years ago. It was then a great influence on my work as a composer and a catalyst for seeing differently what was familiar and taken for granted. To re-read Naess' work and to find it still (perhaps even more) relevant is a testimony to his insights and analysis. The book requires patience and a willingness to process details. It is precisely the clarity of ideas and historical perspective that continues to keep the content current. This is not a book for those who are interested in a general overview. Naess means business--that's why a whole generation of environmentally conscious people have carried his work forward.

Format: Paperback
The author develops the foundation of his nature-oriented philosophy with the traditional rigor, logic and method employed to describe new system of values. A bit harsh sometimes but philosophy demands that. For a more accessible and pragmatic artwork on the same subject, I would advise "Small is beautiful" by E. F. Schumacher.
