4.0 out of 5 stars In place of dualistic hubris, 25 Aug. 2006
This review is from: Ecopsychology: Restoring the Earth/Healing the Mind (Sierra Club Books Publication) (Paperback)
This is a lovely collection. Roszack has always been at the forefront of the synthesis behind the practice of Revolutionary Love. Here he and his coeditors collect together essays by leading thinkers and practitioners showing how the "endarkenment" split between human consciousness and the world itself ( between logos and psyche) is the terrible alienation that deprives us of our true nature, our planet and each other. Together with the work of Gregory Bateson, and Engels unsurpassed dialectics of materialism, this reader provides a complete course in revolutionary epistemology.

The collection is over a decade old now and none of it is out of date, indeed it ( including the ecofeminist insights and the shamanism ) becomes more relevant ( and more mainstream!)everyday.

My only qualm is about the widerness experiences used to wake people up to their alienation. Though they do emphasise low impact practices nonetheless they incorporate many things today's dubscouts (see dubsolution.org) would avoid - commercial trading of the trips, air travel , and the use of professional leaders.

Nonetheless an excellent volume to place beside Alistair McIntosh's Soil and Soul.
