A Spiritual Imperative

The theme of the Bristol Schumacher Lectures was to investigate the meaning of the word spirit in an age in which materialism has drowned out the deeper meaning of life, and in which we have lost touch with nature. In the process of this undermining of the human spirit we have been discouraged from seeking to cultivate it within each of us.

Beyond Deep Ecology

Beyond Deep Ecology - video clip

Satish Kumar explains the difference between ‘shallow ecology’ and ‘deep ecology’ — terms first coined by the Norwegian philosopher Arne Naess. Drawing from his Jain religious background, he describes what he sees as the sacredness of nature. He suggests how the notion of deep ecology could be developed still further to form a ‘reverential ecology’ that challenges the Darwinian notion of survival of the fittest.
