The arts and the humanities have been devalued, genuine science has been crippled, and the quest for autonomy and democracy undermined. The resultant trajectory towards global ecological destruction appears inexorable, and neither governments nor environmental movements have significantly altered this, or indeed, seem able to. This book is a wide-ranging and scholarly analysis of this failure. It reframes the dynamics of the debate beyond the discourses of economics, politics and techno-science. From a philosophical foundation, it puts forth a manifesto for transforming our culture into one which could provide an effective global environmental movement and provide the foundations for a global ecological civilization.
