Introduction to Deep EcologyShallow Ecology vs.. Deep Ecology

    • “Shallow Ecology searches for practical solutions for particular environmental problems.”
    • Deep Ecology aims at the reshaping of attitudes toward human / non-human life.
  • Deep Ecology
    • Initiated by Arne Naess
    • Outlined in Naess’ Eight Points
slide3

Point 1

  • The well-being and flourishing of human and non-human life on Earth have value in themselves*.
  • These values are independent of the usefulness of the non-human world for human purposes. *Synonyms: intrinsic value inherent worth
slide4

Point 2

  • Richness and diversity of life forms contribute to the realization of these values and are also values in themselves.
slide5

Point 3

  • Humans have no right to reduce this richness and diversity except to satisfy vital needs.
slide6

Point 4

  • The flourishing of human life and cultures is compatible with a substantially smaller human population. The flourishing of non-human life requires a smaller human population
slide7

Point 5

  • Present human interference with the non-human world is excessive, and the situation is rapidly worsening.
slide8

Point 6

  • Policies must therefore be changed. These policies affect basic economic, technological, and ideological structures. The resulting state of affairs will be deeply different from the present.
slide9

Point 7

  • The ideological change will be mainly that of appreciating life quality (dwelling in situations of inherent value) rather than adhering to an increasingly higher standard of living. There will be a profound awareness of the difference between bigness and greatness.
slide10

Point 8

  • Those who subscribe to the foregoing points have an obligation directly or indirectly to try to implement the necessary changes.
