About this product
- DescriptionDecades before the environmental movement emerged in the 1960s, Ador condemned our destructive and self-destructive relationship to the natural world, warning of the catastrophe that may result if we continue to treat nature as an object that exists exclusively for our own benefit. Ador on Nature presents the first detailed examination of the pivotal role of the idea of natural history in Ador's work. A comparison of Ador's concerns with those of key ecological theorists - social ecologist Murray Bookchin, ecofeminist Carolyn Merchant, and deep ecologist Arne Naess - reveals how Ador speaks directly to many of today's most pressing environmental issues. Ending with a discussion of the philosophical conundrum of unity in diversity, Ador on Nature also explores how social solidarity can be promoted as a necessary means of confronting environmental problems.
