Écologie sociale

L’écologie sociale est une théorie philosophique, sociale et politique sur l'écologie mise sur pied par l’américain Murray Bookchin (1921-2006) dans les années soixante. Elle montre les problèmes écologiques comme découlant principalement de problèmes sociaux, notamment des différentes formes de hiérarchies et de dominations, et cherche à les régler à travers le modèle d’une société adaptée au développement humain et à la biosphère. C’est une théorie d’écologie politique radicale basée sur le communalisme qui s’oppose au système capitaliste actuel de production et de consommation. Elle vise la mise en place d’une société morale, décentralisée, solidaire, guidée par la raison.

She died on Saturday 14 April, after a long battle with kidney failure. Dalrymple was born and schooled in Durban, and started her career as a teacher of English and Drama in the late 1960s in Empangeni. She was later appointed as a lecturer in the Department of English at the University of Zululand (UNIZUL). During this period, she challenged the accepted practice of using only Western texts and teaching methods at the University, and fought for contextual and cultural relevance; a central theme throughout her later work. Dalrymple had a great love and passion for theatre, and went on to establish the Department of Drama at UNIZUL, where she was Professor and Head between 1988 and 1996. Dalrymple chaired the HIV and AIDS Committee of Council and Senate for the University of Zululand. "Social ecology"

His writings on libertarian municipalism, a theory of face-to-face, assembly democracy, had an influence on the Green movement and anti-capitalist direct action groups such as Reclaim the Streets. Biography[edit] From 1947 he collaborated with a fellow lapsed Trotskyist, the German expatriate Josef Weber, in New York in the Movement for a Democracy of Content, a group of 20 or so post-Trotskyists who collectively edited the periodical Contemporary Issues – A Magazine for a Democracy of Content. Contemporary Issues embraced utopianism. The periodical provided a forum for the belief that previous attempts to create utopia had foundered on the necessity of toil and drudgery; but now modern technology had obviated the need for human toil, a liberatory development.

Social ecology

Conceptualized as a critique of current social, political, and anti-ecological trends, it espouses a reconstructive, ecological, communitarian, and ethical approach to society. Social ecology advocates a reconstructive and transformative outlook on social and environmental issues, and promotes a directly democratic, confederal politics. As a body of ideas, social ecology envisions a moral economy that moves beyond scarcity and hierarchy, toward a world that reharmonizes human communities with the natural world, while celebrating diversity, creativity and freedom. Social ecology suggests that the roots of current ecological and social problems can be traced to hierarchical (or more specifically kyriarchical) modes of social organization. Overview[edit] Social ecology locates the roots of the ecological crisis firmly in relations of hierarchy and domination between people.
