Annotation:Callicott presents a systematic discussion of indigenous and traditional environmental ethics and suggests that there are similarities between recent postmodern trends and traditional, ecocentric worldviews. Drawing on the work of Taoist scholars, Callicott outlines how Deep Ecological and contemporary feminist thought on “appropriate technology” and “sustainable development” share Taoist concepts of harmony, aesthetic order, process-orientation, and the ideal of wu-wei (non-action).
