Revised and Enlarged Edition
"Every page sizzles with fervor and intellect."
—Fred Pearce, Wildlife
"Edward Goldsmith has written one of those books, like Darwin's Origin of Species or Karl Marx's Das Kapital, that is going to change the world we live in."
"Goldsmith lays out an intellectually rigorous and emotionally compelling ecological worldview. May it be widely read—and widely acted upon."
"Anyone interested in charting the planet's survival must read this vital work."
—Jerry Mander, author of In the Absence of the Sacred
The basic belief in the whole was at the heart of the worldview of primal, earth-oriented societies, as manifested by the Tao of the ancient Chinese, the R'ta of Vedic India, the Asha of the Avestas, and the Sedaq of the tribal Hebrews. The Way was the path taken to maintain the critical order of the cosmos. Echoing the way of traditional cultures, Goldsmith presents an all-embracing, coherent worldview that promotes more harmonious and sustainable practices capable of satisfying real biological, social, ecological, and spiritual needs.
Revised to include a glossary, index, bibliographic notes, and several updated chapters, this is a major work by one of our boldest and most promising thinkers.
