Ecology Of Wisdom
A selection of the most inspiring and influential writings from groundbreaking Norwegian environmentalist Arne Naess, in Penguin Modern Classics for the first time
Philosopher, mountaineer and visionary Arne Naess was a key inspiration for the environmental movement in his lifetime and remains vital today as the father of the Deep Ecology movement. Drawing on Naess's own time spent living in the wilderness, as well as influences as diverse as Eastern religious practices, Gandhian nonviolent direct action and Spinozan unity systems, his writing calls for cooperative action to protect the earth.
This Penguin Modern Classics edition brings together the best of Naess's trailblazing essays, full of the writer's characteristic enthusiasm, wit, and spiritual fascination with nature. This selection is an inspiration for all those looking to follow in his footsteps.
