An excellent resource for the already converted. 20. Januar 2003
Von Richard Risbridger - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
As a long time environmental activist and graduate student in philosophy I found the book wonderfully comprehensive in its analysis and explanation of deep ecology. The book delves nicely into the sources of deep ecology and its response to other perspectives on environmental issues. I found it a quick read (I read it at the gym, but then, I read Heidegger for fun) and well put together.
It will not, however, make someone who is coming from a perspective far from deep ecology change their mind. For that I would recommend Muir or Jeffers or better yet, spend some time in the real wilderness yourself. What it does is provide extensive background material and elucidation of the philosophy to someone who already believes in the importance of wilderness preservation.

Von Steven H Propp - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Bill Devall (d. 2009) was Professor Emeritus in Sociology at Humboldt State University, and the author of other books such as Clearcut: The Tragedy of Industrial Forestry, Simple in Means, Rich in Ends: Practicing Deep Ecology, and Living Richly in an Age of Limits. George Sessions is an Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at Sierra College, and edited Deep Ecology for the Twenty-First Century.

They wrote in the Preface to this 1985 book, "Many philosophers and theologians are calling for a new ecological philosophy for our time. We believe, however, that we may not need something new, but need to reawaken something very old, to reawaken our understanding of Earth wisdom... the themes in 'Deep Ecology' alternate between personal, individual options and public policy and collective options... the book offers an examination of the dominant worldview in our society, which has led directly to the continuing crisis of culture. We then present an ecological, philosophical, spiritual approach for dealing with the crisis."

They suggest that the major contribution of the science of ecology to deep ecology has been "the rediscovery within the modern scientific context that everything is connected to everything else." Ecology thus provided a view of Nature that was lacking in the "discrete, reductionistic approach to Nature" of the other sciences. (Pg. 85)

They observe that even in our highly technical society, "there are many who share these deep intuitions and the experience of the ritual journey into wilderness as 'sacred space.'" (Pg. 112)

They contrast deep ecology with the Christian notion of "stewardship" and with James Lovelock's position (Gaia: A New Look at Life on Earth) by asserting that the "narrowly utilitarian view" of natural resources still views natural resources as primarily for human use, and "fails to distinguish vital human needs from mere desires, egoistic arrogance and adventurism in technology." (Pg. 125)

This book is one of the foundational documents of the Deep Ecology movement, and will be of considerable interest to those interested in environmentalism, and earth spirituality.

A ponderous classic of the environmental movement. 29. Mai 2000
Von Shawn Moses - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This classic text of the environmental movememt has influenced groups as diverse as The Nature Conservancy, Greenpeace, and Earth First! Devall and Sessions explore the emotional and spiritual underpinnings of hamanity's ties to the earth in this deeply philosophical work. They link a plethora of sources in their exploration of Deep Ecology, including numerous religions, the words of such notables as David Brower, Aldo Leopold, and Edward Abbey, and the perspectives of many cultures. Despite all of this, though, I found it somewhat lacking. Not present is the graceful beauty of Aldo Leopold, nor the raw passion of John Muir. Perhaps this book might grow dog-eared with use in the library of a Philosophy Professor or a career activist, but I suspect that most people, like me, will find this book a bit dull. Call me simpleminded, but I was more deeply moved by Leopold's heartfelt musings on the chickadee in "A Sand County Almanac" than by Devall and Sessions' philosophical ruminations.

pretentious academic grandstanding 28. August 2014
Von A Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is one of those books that would have been better left in the trees. There's nothing in it that wasn't said better before, and its pretension of being "more deeply ecological than thou" makes its "movement" a ready target for influential anti-ecologists like Joan Didion, as when she's demonizing Robinson Jeffers (his poetry "pretentious, his postures ugly") in her Where I Was From: "He called himself an 'Inhumanist.' (As in, from a posting on the Jeffers studies web site, 'I'm interested in the relationship between Inhumanism and Deep Ecology and would welcome any thoughts or comments.')"
