What is the ecosophy of the mind or, more simple, the deep ecology of the mind?
Is a knowledge and a state of conscience based on the ancient tradition, namely Maya and Buddhism, and the work of Arne Naess, Arno Gruen, Félix Guattari, Carl Gustav Jung and Gregory Bateson (and many others, of course). It is a kind of deep ecology applied do the mind.
As we know, Arne Naess, the father of the concept of deep ecology, "has come under many influences, most notably Gandhi and Spinoza. The Buddhist influence on his work, though less pervasive, provides the most direct account of key deep ecological concepts such as Self‐realization and intrinsic value. Like early Buddhism, Naess responds to the human suffering that causes environmental destruction by challenging us to return to the reality of lived experience"
(Curtin, 1996: 239).
