The Ecology of Freedom: The Emergence and Dissolution of Hierarchy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“The very notion of the domination of nature by man stems from the very real domination of human by human.” With this succinct formulation, Murray Bookchin launches his most ambitious work, The Ecology of Freedom. An engaging and extremely readable book of breathtaking scope, its inspired synthesis of ecology, anthropology and political theory traces our conflicting legacies of hierarchy and freedom from the first emergence of human culture to today’s globalized capitalism, constantly pointing the way to a sane, sustainable ecological future.

Murray Bookchin, cofounder of the Institute for Social Ecology, has been an active voice in the ecology and anarchist movements for more than 40 years. The author of numerous books and articles, he lives in Burlington, Vermont.

Synopsis:

How did our social and ecological nightmare develop? More importantly, how do we free ourselves?

Synopsis:

Cultural Writing. Politics and History. Murray Bookchin synthesizes ecology, anthropology, philosophy and political theory in this hard-hitting examination of global capitalism and its devastating effect on the natural world. Covering a wide scope of political history and human attitudes towards exploitable resources, Bookchin raises fundamental questions regarding the very nature of freedom and domination. "For many who are disillusioned with the reigning traditions of materialism, idealism, and dualism.the work will be of major significance"--Telos.
