dc.description.abstractBookchin's social ecology explores the narrative of domination and hierarchy. He argues that today's environmental crisis reflects a link between the human domination of nature and the domination of human by human. Hierarchy, as the pivot of such domination, is viewed as a psychology which permeates and corrodes not only social life (as reflected in class, gender, ethnic and other relations), but nature as well. Bookchin, seeking to replace hierarchy with cooperation by devolving power and autonomy to the individual in community, produces an eco-anarchism. Bookchin argues for the interpenetration of the human and the natural, seeing humans as 'nature rendered selfconscious'. Since evolution is viewed as a dialectic privileging participation, differentiation and spontaneity, community becomes both the means and ends of an ecological society. The critique in this paper explores the autonomy-community tension in Bookchin as well as the broad political implications of Bookchin's framework of social change.
