Integral Ecology: Uniting Multiple Perspectives on the Natural World
Sean Esbjörn-Hargens B.A. ’95 coauthors a comprehensive volume that applies integral theory to ecology and environmental studies. The book identifies 200 distinct approaches to nature and provides a meta-framework for including their insights in problem solving. It also features three in-depth case studies: work with marine fisheries in Hawai’i, strategies of eco-activists to protect Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest, and a study of community development in El Salvador.
