Inhaltsangabe: First published in 1992, The Way is Edward Goldsmith's magnum opus. In it, he proposes that the stability and integrity of humans depend on the preservation of the balance of natural systems surrounding the individual--family, community, society, ecosystem, and the ecosphere itself. Portraying life processes and ecological thinking as holistic, Goldsmith calls for a paradigm shift away from the reductionist approach of modern science.
The basic belief in the whole was at the heart of the worldview of primal, earth-oriented societies, as manifested by the Tao of the ancient Chinese, the R'ta of Vedic India, the Asha of the Avestas, and the Sedaq of the tribal Hebrews. The Way was the path taken to maintain the critical order of the cosmos. Echoing the way of traditional cultures, Goldsmith presents an all-embracing, coherent worldview that promotes more harmonious and sustainable practices capable of satisfying real biological, social, ecological, and spiritual needs.
Revised to include a glossary, index, bibliographic notes, and several updated chapters, this is a major work by one of our boldest and most promising thinkers.
Inhaltsangabe: A point-by-point summary of the philosophical and ideological values that underpin the ecology movement. The message from environmentalists and many scientists is now clear - our modern, technological way of life is destroying our planet and threatening the very existence of mankind's future. Goldsmith believes that only a clearly formulated ecological worldview is likely to give rise to a comprehensive strategy for assuring the earth's future. In "The Way", he puts forward the principles which he regards as fundamental to such a view and stresses the need for people to realize that they are an integral part of nature. This book offers both well argued theory and practical advice and spells out the philosophical, political, economic and scientific foundation for an ecological worldview.
