About this book

A book that combines moral and political philosophy with traditions of activism and literature in a background of scientific knowledge and interpretation to build a comprehensive picture of an ecological humanity.

Reviews

“This text provides a thought-provoking and well-constructed conceptualisation of humanity, showing clear insight into some of the major challenges faced by the environmental movement, and offering an alternative way forward, mindful of those challenges. In these current times, with the ecological crisis showing no signs of abating, such thinking and reframing of humanity’s place in the world offers a valuable and fresh perspective.” (Susan Warren, Environmental Values, Vol. 26 (1), February, 2017)
