On the intellectual origins of the ecological crisis: Towards a gestalt solution

Ethics, Place and Environment 8 (1):95 – 111 (2005)
Abstract
What are the intellectual origins of the ecological crisis? Which approach can offer an alternative? In the first part of this paper, I argue that the crisis was caused not by faith in reason as such, but instead by distortions of reason. Further, I consider the intellectual prerequisites for ecological destruction, the ultimate cause of which can be seen in the transitional state of our civilisation from a dependent to an interdependent mode of interaction with the biosphere. A possible remedy to this can be the reconciliation of humankind with the biosphere by means of the Gestalt approach.
