In a sense, every human being is in search of her place in the world. Mine has taken me through socialism, that I began to discover in 1971, to ecological socialism, that I have begun to help define since 2009 in my own writings and by selection of posts in Our Place in the World: A Journal of Ecosocialism (OPITW). My view of ecological socialism has been inspired by those who like Henry David Thoreau believe that "In wildness is the preservation of the world." In June 2017, I collected my own writings from OPITW and established Kamran Nayeri’s Writings blog to facilitate their access to anyone interested. My own view of ecological socialism, ecocentric socialism, stands apart from all hereto anthropocentric socialist and ecosocialist theories. To save the world, we must love it--Mother Earth and web of life of which we are a tiny part.
By Kamran Nayeri, Our Place in the World
The fight for ecocentrism, like the fight for human emancipation, is a fight for universal values. Without ecocentrism, that is not just an intellectual point of view but a genuine love for nature and for life on Earth, there will be no humanity and no human emancipation.
