Back to Earth: Tomorrow's Environmentalism






Pub Date: 
Publisher:  Temple University Press
Summary: In the face of our receding connection to nature and the loss of our direct experience of the world, Anthony Weston proposes a different kind of environmentalism in Back to Earth. Weston argues that we must restore our link with the "more-than-human" world, bringing wilderness, animals, and the Earth closer to individuals and into daily life.Weston explores a multitude of practices that can bring humans back in touch... with the "more-than-human" world. Using specific, sometimes deeply unsettling, accounts of the state of animals and the land, Weston makes clear that as humans we must put aside our presuppositions about our own centrality and superiority. Instead, for example, we would do well to consider the means by which animals communicate and understand boundaries, thereby establishing what Weston terms "transhuman etiquettes."While acknowledging that environmentalist policies such as recycling and protecting habitat and species remain crucial, Weston argues that we must go further and deeper. To do so, one essential effort is to restore our connection to Earth: affirming our participation in this world through a rediscovery of touch and smell; noticing the details of nature; restoring the great annual celebrations that remind us of the turn of the seasons and the migrations of birds; building houses in new Earth-friendly ways; and planning neighborhoods that allow for other-than-human beings and wild areas as well as ourselves. Author note: Anthony Weston teaches Philosophy and Interdisciplinary Studies at Elon College, North Carolina, and is the author of Toward Better Problems: New Perspectives on Abortion, Animal Rights, the Environment, and Justice (Temple).
