Explains the role of language in causing and in resolving the ecocrisis and shows that ecologically adaptive behavior can be facilitated through language.

This book explains the role of language in causing and in resolving the ecocrisis, showing that ecologically adaptive behavior can be facilitated through language. The authors explore the discourses of deep ecology, ecofeminism, Judeo-Christianity, quantum theory, and Native American world views, all to the end of empowering ecosocial change.

"There is no other topic which reflects so penetratingly both the contradictions and the hopes that the contemporary situation holds for us, and these essays serve as a very clear mirror in this respect." -- Daniel Kealey, Towson State University

Max Oelschlaeger is Professor of Philosophy and Religion Studies at the University of North Texas, Denton.
