Radical Ecopsychology

Andy Fisher explores the need for a contextual Ecopsychology, focusing on the need to link self, society and environment, in the form of a triangle, with each aspect interconnecting with the other.

In his book, Radical Ecopsychology, Andy Fisher focuses on the pains of capitalism, which has left us disconnected from the natural environment, yet noticing that we are lacking the nourishment that deep connectedness to nature brings.  Capitalism leaves us hunting for what we lack in the form of products which will never satisfy us.  He asks that we return to the knowledge which shapes the nature cultures, searching for new ways of being with the world which go beyond western hierarchies, and the very individualist culture of western society.
