Summary
"In Culture of Ecology, Robert Babe proposes a radical move towards more ecologically sound ways of thinking, communicating, and acting, especially in terms of economics and technology. His vision for a truly sustainable future entails reformulating economics to make that discipline more environmentally friendly and in essence requires a shift in our entire cultural outlook. In his analysis, Babe presents a comparison and critique of economic and ecological discourses in the context of ecosystem vitality. While focusing mainly on present-day, dominant ecological paradigms - neoclassical economics and the ecosystem concept in ecology - he also looks at the evolution of mainstream theories as well as heterodoxies, particularly 'ecological economics.' He argues that economics must not simply take into account environmental matters, as does mainstream environmental economics, but rather that it become fundamentally transformed so as to conform to principles of ecology. Culture of Ecology is a work that challenges many of our assumptions about environmental issues and their solutions, the uses of technology, and the nature of progress."--Jacket
