Example text

The “shallow,” currently more influential approach to environmentalism is identified with treating the symptoms of the ecological crisis, such as pollution and resource degradation. This reform-oriented approach is grounded in technological optimism, economic growth, and scientific management, not in ultimate premises that plumb the relationship between people and nature. It thus ultimately fails to address the philosophical, social, and political roots of the ecocultural crisis. The “deep” approach, on the other hand, while in no way discounting the exigency of addressing pollution and resource degradation, adopts a broader, long-term, more sceptical stance.

With this argument that change in science happens gradually, by generalization and differentiation, Naess foreshadowed his response to Kuhn well before The Structure of Scientific Revolutions was published in 1962. With Erkenntnis, Naess also anticipated ideas that later became prominent in linguistic philosophy, such as the importance of ordinary language over formal systems and the importance of using observation of contrasts and discriminations to build up understanding of systems. In the end, presaging his own radical pluralism to come, Naess seems to relax his early position on the importance and possibility of creating a metascience of science from the “far outside” and ultimately comes to view subjective and behavioral models as two different point-of-departure formulations in an indefinite plurality of equally valid approaches for a metascience of science.

Thanks for your vision, Doug. Quincey Tompkins Imhoff, former executive director of the Foundation (and current vice president of the board), also deserves recognition for her tremendous support during the early years of the project, as do program directors Jerry Mander and John Davis. Special thanks also go to Sharon Donovan, the Foundation’s publishing manager, who in the project’s final years has guided it through a long and sometimes circuitous path to completion. The Foundation has also always had an amazingly gifted and dedicated staff.
