The Poetic Aspects of Deep Ecology

The main premise of the poetic paradigm is that the mind has an intimate connection with poetry, which imparts greater meaning to life. This connection has been recognized by many poets and philosophers of the past; however, it is now that their ideas seem vital for raising human consciousness and saving the planet. Writer, poet, and translator Victor Postnikov traces the poetic vision of humanity as a constant struggle for greater consciousness, and shows its relevancy for contemporary society.

Deep Ecology Almost Unknown In Italy

The political situation of the green movement in Italy is not good, writes Italian eco-centrist Guido Dalla Casa. This isn’t unusual in Italy: there’s almost no mention of the environment in Italian political discourse and the concept of Deep Ecology is almost unknown.

With no green representative in the Italian parliament there is little hope of any deep or even shallow greening coming from the Italian political sphere.
