“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Christine Skolnik on OOO and Baboon Metaphysics

What a great post this is. I'm excited to read the book she describes, but the post alone is really worth it.

Christine manages to make some very deep observations about ecological thinking in a short space. In particular, what she says about deep ecology is very resonant. Very pithy, distilled observation.
