The Way: An Ecological World View

Rate this book

The Way, Edward Goldsmith's magnum opus, proposes that the stability and integrity of the human depend on the preservation of the balance of natural systems surrounding the individual - family, community, society, ecosystem, and the ecosphere itself. Goldsmith calls for a paradigm shift away from the reductionist approach of modern science. Echoing the way of traditional cultures, he presents an all-embracing, coherent worldview that promotes more harmonious and sustainable practices capable of satisfying real biological, social, environmental, and spiritual needs. Revised to include a glossary, index, bibliographic notes, and several updated chapters, this is a major work by one of our boldest and most promising thinkers.

Questions scientific theories such as Natural Selection and Entropy which I thought were interesting, but I'm not sure I'm convinced of his "Way" as to the further advancement of our society and our planet.
