From Romanticism to Deep Ecology: The Continuing Evolution in American Environmental Thought.
Taproot, v12 n3 p8-11 Fall-Win 2000
Describes the contributions to deep ecology of Henry Thoreau, who advocated acting upon strongly held convictions; John Muir, who adopted a biocentric view of nature; and Aldo Leopold, who formulated an egalitarian ecosystem ethic. While deep ecology is moving toward a new vision of humankind's relation to nature, it has yet to coalesce into a well-defined paradigm. (TD)
