I read this for a class in undergrad. I was completely stunned ths my emotional reaction to the information in this book. It is a must-read for people that care about the environment.
His only lengthy departure from academia was when he served as editor of Peace News s in London during and Roszak’s writings and social philosophy have been controversial since the publication of The Making of a Counter Culture in In his classic work, Roszak views the ecopsychologh dissident culture of the s as an alternative to the dominant technocratic environment. To transform society from “technological totalitarianism” and the depersonalized methodology of science, Roszak gracefully suggests a merger restorinf subjectivity, individualism, mysticism, a symbiotic relationship with nature, and an ethical concern for the well-being of others.
A major criticism of Roszak’s emphasis on spiritual transformation and his faith in youthful dissidents is his “apolitical” philosophy. Reliance on expanded consciousness and personal fulfillment is not viewed as a hwaling force for change. Unfortunately, these works often have been simplistically read as paeans to individual expanded consciousness.
Roszak analyzes the influences on the radical movement of the s, seeking a union between scientific thinking and other modes of consciousness: In The Voice of the EarthRoszak bridges the scientific and ecospychology subjective mind to stimulate a culture that nourishes redtoring personal fulfillment and the well-being of the earth.
Roszak departs from his general thesis in The Cult of Information to challenge the folklore surrounding the computer revolution and to address the distinction between the processing of information and thinking. He opposes technological-industrial development and the preeminence of science but continues to support changes in attitudes, consciousness, and values in order to transform technological and scientific achievements into engines for the well-being of human beings.
