Arne Naess

Arne Næss was a Norwegian philosopher, ecologist, and activist who coined the term Deep Ecology. He was a divisive figure in the environmental movement, making the claim that much ecology refused to deal with the root cause of environmental destruction: society itself.

Deep Ecology removes man from his privileged place at the center of the environment. See Deep Ecology

Næss’s work was inspired by Rachel Carson’s book Silent Spring.
