WORLDVIEWS, PHILOSOPHY, ETHICS

Many worldviews compete with others in describing the world and how humans ought ethically to act within it. One cannot ask the question of which policies promote ecological civilization without considering classic philosophical and ethical questions as they have arisen in the history of the various human civilizations. These discussions offer often unrecognized resources for concrete policy discussions. Broadly speaking, we seek to reconcile fragmentation with a relational framework on which an ecological civilization can be built.
