Preface MARXISM has a two-fold bearing on science. In the first place Marxists study science among other human activities. They show how the scientific activities of any society depend on its changing needs, and so in the long run on its productive methods, and how science changes the productive methods, and therefore the whole society. This analysis is needed for any scientific approach to history, and even non-Marxists are now accepting parts of it. But secondly Marx and Engels were not conten...

This book marks a watershed in the social sciences. The qualitative, critical perspective of sociology and allied disciplines challenges the technocentric 'managerialism' which dominates environmental policy, its discourse and its impact. The authors explore the relationship between social theory and sustainability in an attempt to transend technical rhetoric and embrace a broader understanding of 'nature'.

Die meisten Landschaften konnen heute nur als Ergebnis von Wechselwirkungen zwischen naturlichen und gesellschaftlichen Prozessen auf verschiedenen zeitlichen und raumlichen Ebenen verstanden werden. Die Landschaftsokologie hat Methoden zur Bewertung und Beschreibung von Landschaften entwickelt, die eine genaue Differenzierung hinsichtlich verschiedener naturlicher Merkmale von Landschaften, etwa Geomorphologie, Klima, Boden, Flora und Fauna erlauben (vgl. Dikau; Schmidt; Herweg; Wohlrab, Sokoll...

The Buddhist worldview can inform and enrich the efforts to modify consumption into “sustainable consumption” forms that can bring about and sustain better quality of life and well-being for humans and the living environment. Together production, consumption and exchange form the essence of economics as the study of livelihood activities and how people, communities and societies manage, distribute and utilize their scarce human and natural resources in the process of “earning their living”.

In December 2012, a pink-haired complex systems researcher named Brad Werner made his way through the throng of 24,000 earth and space scientists at the Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union, held annually in San Francisco… it was Werner’s own session that was attracting much of the buzz. It was titled “Is Earth F**ked?”… Standing at the front of the conference room, the geophysicist from the University of California, San Diego walked the crowd through the advanced computer model he was...

Many theorists have attempted to explain the lack-lustre performance of the United Nations (UN) and other international development bodies in their work to reduce global poverty. Furthermore many of these initiatives have been largely unresponsive to a growing body of criticism from a variety of discourses. The work of contemporary French philosopher Michael Foucault has been used extensively to problematize and thereby lay open for examination the hidden assumptions and mechanisms behind the We...
