In the face of our receding connection to nature and the loss of our direct experience of the world, this book proposes a different kind of environmentalism. It argues that we must restore our link with the 'more-than-human' world, bringing wilderness, animals, and the Earth closer to individuals and into daily life.
Reviews about Back to Earth: Tomorrow's Environmentalism (2):
I've used this text in the classroom four times in the last six years or so. In every case, students have praised the Weston for both his accessibility and his radical critique of how our cultural practices in regard to the environment actually alienate us from a more than human world.
The forefront of ethics is here. In "Back to Earth", philosopher Anthony Weston digs to the core of why modern western humans feel disconnected from the environment - the heart of current ecological and social calamities.

We are in the environmental movement - many would call the current portion of it the "climate movement". Changes will continue to take place until humans and non-humans can coexist in healthy reciprocating community. We will see more destruction before we see more solutions. But this seminal text delivers the basis for a reframing of our language, actions and minds that WILL be a part of the most meaningful solutions.
