A "crash course" in the ecological dynamics of the biosphere and their relavance to the social choices made by human societies.
  PendleHillLibrary | Jul 14, 2016 |
A profoundly argued theory, with practical advice, which illustrates the parallelism between biosphere and vernacular social systems and provides a sound ecological worldview with a vision of optimal social order based on unique philosophical, political, economic and scientific foundations. A basic reference work on how to implement the theses of deep ecology. ( )

Book description
This book 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.
