Essential Spiral Ecology & Consciousnessby J I Prattis
Synopses & Reviews
Eco-psychology, traditional ecological knowledge, and globalization, are brought into a discussion of events that take the reader on a sweep of history, from Chief Seattle's speech of 1854 to the World Trade Organization, and beyond- to the Tobin Tax and the reconfiguration of our global order. This is a different kind of book about Ecology and Consciousness.
Book News Annotation:
Asserting that ecology and consciousness are intertwined, akin to the double helix of DNA, and that their relationship is just as essential to the maintenance of life, the author argues that the attacks of September 11th have forced a radical rethink of the way humans interact with the environment and the role of political activism. He proposes a meditative base to activism based on Buddhism and the respect for nature embodied in a speech attributed to Chief Seattle. He sets this in opposition to corporate capital and mindless technological development.
