Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Expanded new edition of a classic examination of the psychological roots of our ecological crisis.

Personal in its style yet radical in its vision, Radical Ecopsychology, Second Edition offers an original introduction to ecopsychology—an emerging field that ties the human mind to the natural world. In order for ecopsychology to be a force for social change, Andy Fisher insists it must become a more comprehensive and critical undertaking. Drawing masterfully from humanistic psychology, hermeneutics, phenomenology, radical ecology, nature writing, and critical theory, he develops a compelling account of how the human psyche still belongs to nature. This daring and innovative book proposes a psychology that will serve all life, providing a solid base not only for ecopsychological practice, but also for a critical theory of modern society. In this second edition, Fisher includes a new preface, a new section looking back at the development of the field since the book’s initial publication a decade ago, and a look at the challenges that lie ahead.

“In this second edition of his 2001 treatise published under the same title, Fisher reveals his growth and maturity as a theoretical analyst for defining ecopsychology, using perspectives drawn from his vantage point as a practicing psychotherapist.” — CHOICE

Praise for the First Edition

“…a provocative look at the philosophical concepts (and conceits) that underlie what truly is a radical new form of social thought.” — Utne

Andy Fisher is a psychotherapist in private practice.
