Subjects Environmentalism. Environmental ethics. Nature conservation. Ecology -- Moral and ethical aspects. THroughout the entire book McCallum seamlessly intertwines poetry, medical science, Nguni tribal wisdom, Jungian psychology, and his own experience of nature awareness into a work of fact and theory, of history and recommendation for the future. I understood that he wants the reader to feel the present necessity of implementing a lifestyle of holistic action that benefits all life. Once a person is ecologically intelligent, their actions will reflect their conscious connection with all life.
It is a revamping of the human lifestyle. We must question every part of human culture and develop discipline regarding our wants and needs.
I expected this book to be dry and scientific, but he surprises the reader from the start when he begins with his poem Wilderness and follows throughout the book with his original poetry. I was also surprised that I liked the use of poetic metaphor because I usually am not a huge fan of poetry.
This is where his genuine ideas emerge. He was honest with the reader.
He urges the reader to approach our environmental issues with the eyes of a poet and then let us see with his eyes through his poetry. This created a convincing argument because he was already doing what he was suggesting, his conviction proved it was working for him, and then he backed each idea up with science. Being an artist, I understood his way of seeing immediately and related to his technique easily, so I am a biased audience. I did not need the scientific back up to be convinced, but I do find evolutionary neuroscience quite fascinating and useful for convincing those who may not be seeing yet.
Ian McCallum, Ecological Intelligence: Rediscovering Ourselves in Nature - PhilPapers
I find his observational links between human brain patterning and animal behavior encouraging and proof that by attuning to this we can save our species, and furthermore the Earth, from our path towards extinction. Local Book Search. Swap 2 want. Popular covers see all 6 covers.
