Deep Philosophy, Deep Ecology
Edited by Mary-Ann Crumplin
The ‘Deep Ecology’ movement claims that the serious ecological crisis we are facing stems from a misunderstanding of humankind’s relation to the natural world in the philosophy generally adopted by the modern age. It asserts that merely changing our behaviours without re-examining the underlying assumptions that generated them is likely to end in failure. This anthology of thirteen papers from the Prometheus Trust’s 2017 conference on the theme is a response to the challenge of Deep Ecology: from Taoism to Platonism and neoplatonism, from Hermeticism to St Francis of Assisi, from 'enlightenment' philosophers to post-enlightenment thinkers, the thirteen chapters of Deep Philosophy, Deep Ecology explore ways in which we can reframe and improve our understanding of ourselves, the natural world and the relationship between the two.
