“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

Media Ecology on Integral Ecology

Antonio Lopez does a good job I think, though again (see my comment) I'm left with a visceral reaction to the schematism of it all.

One example that bugs me from the AQAL grid: how come “phenomenology” is only about the first-person view? Does the term intersubjective mean anything anymore?

Again, it seems as if AQAL is a Procrustean bed in which everything has its pre-assigned place, no thinking required.
