Modern environmentalism owes a great debt to philosopher, professor and writer Arne Naess, co-founder of the Deep Ecology movement. Here, editors Alan Drengson and Bill Devall provide a comprehensive but accessible volume of his most groundbreaking and seminal essays, which have remained influential among environmentalists to this very day. An essential anthology from one of modern environmentalism's most important and relevant voices.
Arne Naess was a widely celebrated Norwegian philosopher. He died in Oslo, Norway, in January 2009. Alan Drengson is emeritus professor of philosophy and adjunct professor of environmental studies at the University of Victoria in Canada. Bill Devall was emeritus professor of sociology at Humboldt State University, Arcata, California. He died in 2009.
