Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Presents integral approaches to ecology that cross the boundaries of the humanities, social sciences, and biophysical sciences.

In the current era of increasing planetary interconnectedness, ecological theories and practices are called to become more inclusive, complex, and comprehensive. The diverse contributions to this book offer a range of integral approaches to ecology that cross the boundaries of the humanities and sciences and help us understand and respond to today’s ecological challenges. The contributors provide detailed analyses of assorted integral ecologies, drawing on such founding figures and precursors as Thomas Berry, Leonardo Boff, Holmes Rolston III, Ken Wilber, and Edgar Morin. Also included is research across the social sciences, biophysical sciences, and humanities discussing multiple worldviews and perspectives related to integral ecologies. The Variety of Integral Ecologies is both an accessible guide and an advanced supplement to the growing research for a more comprehensive understanding of ecological issues and the development of a peaceful, just, and sustainable planetary civilization.

Sam Mickey is Professor of Theology and Religious Studies and Environmental Studies at the University of San Francisco. He is the author of Coexistentialism and the Unbearable Intimacy of Ecological Emergency; Whole Earth Thinking and Planetary Coexistence: Ecological Wisdom at the Intersection of Religion, Ecology, and Philosophy; and On the Verge of a Planetary Civilization: A Philosophy of Integral Ecology. Sean Kelly is Professor of Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness at the California Institute of Integral Studies. He is the author of Individuation and the Absolute: Hegel, Jung, and the Path Toward Wholeness and Coming Home: The Birth and Transformation of the Planetary Era and the coeditor (with Donald Rothberg) of Ken Wilber in Dialogue: Conversations with Leading Transpersonal Thinkers. Adam Robbert is a doctoral candidate studying the philosophy of mind, action, and perception at the California Institute of Integral Studies.
