Article/Chapter Title:Deep Ecology: A New Philosophy for our Time?
Journal Title:The Ecologist
Author(s):Fox, Warwick
Date of Publication:1984
Annotation:Fox outlines the basic tenets of Deep Ecology, the concept of inherent value of all species and ecological sustainability, and distinguishes it from shallow ecology with a critique of the metaphysics of mechanistic materialism. He finds a strong connection to religious mystical traditions and the “new physics” in the central Deep Ecological principle of there being no firm ontological divide in the field of existence. However, he warns against conflating principle and practice by urging remembrance of the “in process” aspect of Deep Ecology’s metaphysics of “unity in process.”
