Voice of the Earth by Theodore Roszak
Book DescriptionWhat is the bond between the human psyche and the living planet that nurtured us, and all of life, into existence? What is the link between our own mental health and the health of the greater biosphere? In this "bold, ambitious, philosophical essay" (Publishers Weekly), historian and cultural critic Theodore Roszak explores the relationships between psychology, ecology, and new scientific insights into systems in nature. Drawing on our new understanding of the evolutionary, self-organizing universe, Roszak illuminates our rootedness in the greater web of life, and explores the relationship between our own sanity and the greater-than-human world. The Voice of the Earth seeks to bridge the centuries-old split between the psychological and the ecological, and presents an "ecopsychology" which sees the needs of the planet and the needs of the person as a continuum. The Earth's cry for rescue from the punishing weight of the industrial system we have created is our own cry for a scale and quality of life that will free us to become the whole and healthy human beings we were born to be.
