In this book, Matthew C. Ally explores the changing and increasingly troubled relationship between humankind and planet Earth. Oriented by the seemingly simple example of a woodland pond, he draws together insights from existential philosophy, scientific ecology, and several disciplines in the social sciences and humanities to articulate a strong sense of human belonging in the living Earth community and a binding imperative of participation in the struggle to preserve a habitable planet and build a livable world.

Author Biography

Matthew C. Ally was supposed to be an ecologist. During the same semester in which he took a required course in "Temperate Forest Ecosystems," he took an elective philosophy course called "Tyranny and Freedom." The rest is history. He is professor of philosophy at the Borough of Manhattan Community College of the City University of New York and coordinator of the BMCC Sustainability Studies Project. He has published articles on Sartre's philosophy, progressive and radical pedagogy, philosophical ecology, environmentalism, and sustainability.
