About this product
- DescriptionMost environmental theologians focus their efforts on inspiring a love for the natural world. They seek out metaphors and images from the world's scriptures to create an ethical revolution so that people will begin to passionately care for the earth. This book claims that environmental degradation does t arise out of a blind rage against nature but rather from complex symbol systems that evolved to meet changing techlogical, ecological, and demographic realities. Ecomics as it is taught to undergraduates, business students, and law students is t a value-free, neutral tool but carries with it assumptions and a particular picture of the world. This book brings together insights from three fields: ecomics, ecology, and theology in order to construct a more healthy and productive picture of human wellbeing. Ecomic ideas have a theological history that needs to be addressed if we are to begin healing the world.
