Practicing is simple. Nothing forced, nothing violent, just settling into our place. “Deep ecology,” a term originated in 1972 by Norwegian philosopher Arne Naess, is emerging as a way to develop harmony between individuals, communities and nature. DEEP ECOLOGY–the term and the book–unfolds the path to living a simple, rich life and shows how to participate in major environmental issues in a positive and creative manner.

“In the affairs of men; there always appears to be a need for at least two things simultaneously; which on the face of it; seems to be incompatible and to exclude one another. We always need both freedom and order. We need the freedom of lots and lots of small; autonomous units; and, at the same time, the orderliness of large-scale, possibly global, unity and co-ordination.”
