Ecology, community and lifestyle[Reading report] by Margaux Vinez

2011-09-05

The author was part of the “Alternative Management” third year program in HEC in 2011. Margaux Vinez also studied at the Paris School of Economics, in the Master for Public Policies and Development. After having worked in China, Nepal and Morocco, she is currently in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where she estimates, for the World Bank, the consequences of an agricultural policy upon a tropical forest. She should soon begin a Ph.D. thesis that will be about adaptation policies to climatic changes in developing countries

We are going through a deep ecologic crisis. It is no longer a debate, but an everyday reality. Until now, ecological movements seem unable to provide solutions. They are misguided by focusing only on resource management and pollution, instead of challenging the capitalist and techno-industrial way of life. In this book, Arne Naess provides the basis for a deep ecology philosophy and movement: we have to completely rethink the relationship between mankind and nature. This book is emblematic of the deep ecology movement. He provides the philosophical basis and principles for a consistent action.
