András Lányi: Introduction to Ecophilosophy

In my reading, Lányi turns the abstract relation of humans and nature into the relations of humans to each other, this way the catastrophy-report of the “ecocide” turns into a system-criticism in order to envision the possibility of meaningful life. One could say that, in Lányi’s work, ecophilosophy transforms into an “ecology focused” social philosophy (practically, into a a politics of ecology). The review aims to critically reconstruct the logic of this ecological politics.
