Inquiry 39 (2):203 – 217 (1996)
Throughout the globe, degraded ecosystems are in desperate need of restoration. Restoration is based on world?view and the human relationship with the natural world, our place, and the landscape. The question is, can society and its institutions shift from development and use of natural resources to ecological restoration of the natural world without a change in world?view? Some world?views lead to more destructive human behavior than others. Following Naess's ecosophical comparison of the deep and shallow ecology movements, this essay depicts the relationships between restorationist and the natural world. Contrast the anti?restoration position of Katz/Elliot. In deep ecological restoration we can develop a realization that our community is part of the self?producing character of all life. In deep ecological restoration, we find one important medium for the institutionalization, politicalization, and transpersonalization of a deeper understanding of what it means to be a human being with nature
