About this product
- DescriptionThis book seeks to confront an apparent contradiction: that while we are constantly attending to environmental issues, we seem to be woefully out of touch with nature. The goal of Ecopsychology, Phemelogy and the Environment is to foster an enhanced awareness of nature that can lead us to new ways of relating to the environment, ultimately yielding more sustainable patterns of living. This volume is different from other books in the rapidly growing field of ecopsychology in its emphasis on phemelogical approaches, building on the work of phemelogical psychologists such as Maurice Merleau-Ponty. This focus on phemelogical methodologies for articulating our direct experience of nature serves as a critical complement to the usual methodologies of environmental and conservation psychologists, who have emphasized quantitative research. Moreover, Ecopsychology, Phemelogy and the Environment is distinctive insofar as chapters by phemelogically-sophisticated ecopsychologists are complemented by chapters written by phemelogical researchers of environmental issues with backgrounds in philosophy and geology, providing a breadth and depth of perspective t found in other works written exclusively by psychologists.
