Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
...a provocative look at the philosophical concepts (and conceits) that underlie what truly is a radical new form of social thought.— Utne

"Offering the most conceptually robust and complicated analysis of ecological psychology available, Fisher poses a challenge to mainstream psychology. If psychology is to be relevant to a world desperately seeking sustainability-and sanity-the challenge cannot be denied. Psychologists, indeed, all thoughtful people, will find much within to provoke and stimulate altered ways of thinking and feeling."— Robert Romanyshyn, author of The Soul in Grief: Love, Death and Transformation

"Fisher succeeds in synthesizing and integrating a rich, diverse, and extensive amount of material. His emphasis throughout on the experiential-our bodily felt, lived-through experience-brings to light a woefully neglected dimension in the ecology/environmental discourses and debates."— David Michael Levin, Northwestern University
