Ecopsychologyby Theodore (edt) Roszak
Synopses & Reviews
This pathfinding collection shows how the health of the planet is inextricably linked to the psychological health of humanity, individually and collectively. As such, it is sure to become a definitive work for the burgeoning ecopsychology movement, which is both a new beginning for environmentalism and a revolution in modern psychology. Collected here are writings from the premier psychotherapists, thinkers, and eco-activists working in the field, including:
James Hillman, world-renowned Jungian analyst, relating the "one core issue for all psychology" - the nature and limits of human identity - to the condition of the planet
Chellis Glendinning, author of My Name Is Chellis and I'm in Recovery from Western Civilization, alerting us to "the link between the psychological process of addiction and the technological system"
Carl Anthony, former president of Earth Island Institute, arguing for a "genuinely multicultural self and a global civil society without racism"
Ralph Metzner, president of the Green Earth Foundation and author of Maps of Consciousness, decrying our loss of "respect for the mysterious, and humility in relationship to the infinite complexities of the natural world"
Joanna Macy, writer, therapist, and Buddhist, noting that "we all need to unblock our feelings about our threatened planet" if we are to work through out "environmental despair"
This pathfinding collection--by premier psychotherapists, thinkers, and eco-activists in the field--shows how the health of the planet is inextricably linked to the psychological health of humanity, individually and collectively. It is sure to become a definitive work for the ecopsychology movement. Forewords by Lester O. Brown and James Hillman.
This pathfinding collection has become a seminal text for the burgeoning ecopsychology movement, which has brought key new insights to environmentalism and revolutionized modern psychology. Its writers show how the health of the planet is inextricably linked to the psychological health of humanity, individually and collectively.
Contributors to this volume include the premier psychotherapists, thinkers, and eco-activists working in this field. James Hillman, the world-renowned Jungian analyst, identifies as the one core issue for all psychology” the nature and limits of human identity, and relates this to the condition of the planet. Earth Island Institute head Carl Anthony argues for a genuinely multicultural self and a global civil society without racism” as fundamental to human and earthly well-being. And Buddhist writer and therapist Joanna Macy speaks of the need to open up our feelings for our threatened planet as an antidote to environmental despair.
Is it possible,” asks co-editor Theodore Roszak, that the planetary and the personal are pointing the way forward to some new basis for a sustainable economic and emotional life?” Ecopsychology in practice has begun to affirm this, aided by these definitive writings.
