Review

...a provocative look at the philosophical concepts (and conceits) that underlie...a radical new form of social thought. -- Jeremiah Creedon Utne, Dec 2002 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Personal in its style yet radical in its vision, Radical Ecopsychology offers an original introduction to ecopsychology-an emerging field that ties the human mind to the natural world. In order for ecopsychology to be a force for social change, Andy Fisher insists it must become a more comprehensive and critical undertaking. Drawing masterfully from humanistic psychology, hermeneutics, phenomenology, radical ecology, nature writing, and critical theory, he develops a compelling account of how the human psyche still belongs to nature. This daring and innovative book proposes a psychology that will serve all life, providing a solid base not only for ecopsychological practice, but also for a critical theory of modern society. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Radical Ecopsychology is a thoughtful and sophisticated discussion of a new direction which the science of psychology might take; it raises important issues, and I think everyone in the field would benefit from reading it. The reader from Berkeley touched on what is probably the central issue, with the (incorrect) observation that the book "...suffers from the naivite of believing that Cartesian dualism can be resolved with a simple reference to an 'embodied self'". In fact, Andy Fisher draws on the work of philosopher Gene Gendlin, who actually has shown a way in which philosophy can appeal to experience and Cartesian dualism can be resolved. Of course, this sounds impossible. Many (like the reviewer from Berkeley) will reject such a claim a priori, much like the Aristotelian astronomers who refused to look through Galilleo's telescope. But this new direction is important, and open-minded people will want to explore it.

An excellent overview of ecopsychology. A bit philosophical with lots of academic language, but its well worth the work of reading. It contains a lot of radical ideas. This is an important addition to the growing body of text about ecopsychology.

I like his premise and I think it's right on. A primary text on a new field that I think will be very influential once folks start to realize how profoundly disconnected we are from our relationship from land and wildlife and why it matters.
