Placing ourselves in nature: philosophy, public policy and the environment / Andrew Brennan.

Title: Placing ourselves in nature: philosophy, public policy and the environment / Andrew Brennan.
Author(s): Brennan, Andrew.
Date: 1996.
Publisher: Longyearbyen, Norway: Norwegian Polar Institute
In: Deep ecology in the high Arctic 1994 - International Ecophilosophical Symposium Svalbard, Norway, 29th August - 2nd September 1994. (1996.),
Abstract: Our surroundings reflect our values and projects. Speaker looks at possibility of constructing environmental philosophy to diagnose mistakes and form basis for policy. In new crisis, widespread lip-service to ideal prevents us realising how deep problems are. NGO's are important agents for truth, provided that they do not become slaves to own myths. Education for environmental literacy should be at top of agenda; unfortunately, as students ascend educational ladder they become prone to tunnel vision in such frameworks as economics. Bureaucratic thinking brings in other unhealthy structures.
