The Culture of Extinction
Toward a Philosophy of Deep Ecology
By (author) Frederic L. Bender
Culture of Extinction by Frederic L. Bender
Book DescriptionGlobal warming, air and water pollution, ozone-layer depletion, species extinction - these are all the results of what philosopher Frederic L. Bender calls our "culture of extinction." In this probing analysis of the basic cultural assumptions and historical factors that have led to the current dire ecological situation, Bender argues that our only chance of avoiding imminent disaster is to recognise and then change the destructive trends in contemporary culture that will surely be our undoing if left unchecked.
