The website is under construction. Ecosophic Isles will be the website for a group mainly located in the British Isles that has drawn readers from blogs and from attendees of previous courses and an earlier conference in London; see links below.

‘Ecosophia’ is a term used by the American writer JM Greer. He suggests many can draw on wisdom and its traditions and distribute blessing.  There are connections with the study of ecology.

Readers who wish can join a private email discussion group. To become a member please go to https://groups.google.com/a/eeecourse.org/g/ecosophia-uk/ The group organised its 2nd meeting in London in March, a third in July and a fourth in November 2019. There are regular zoom meetings in 2021.

These topics continue to be discussed:

1.        science of geological-scale human influence on future climate

2.       ‘ecological’ inevitabilities embedded in the order of the natural world

3.       inevitable resource constraints for future roll-out of industrial civilisation

4.       history of ideas and philosophy and ‘cycles’  

5.      value in low-tech living – past, present and future

6.       personal actions and consequences and ramifications in consciousness

7.       ‘class’ issues in politics and privilege

8.       present imperial structures and structure of world trade, warfare and privilege

9.    the ‘religion of progress’

There will be a ‘blogroll’ list. In the meantime you can refer back to Economics, Energy & Environment previous courses https://www.eeecourse.org/ and to the ongoing discussion at JM Greer’s ‘Ecosophia’ link https://www.ecosophia.net

  1. Welcome! Those who wish to make comments will be aware of normal courtesies as outlined by JM Greer at all his blogs.

    Just now there is an interesting account of religious doctrines of modern Druidry at Bogatyr’s site Coelbren – see About above for link to his and other sites.

  2. Thanks to Chris McMahon for his recent entry on the work of engineer Philippe Bihouix, and for including an English translation of Philippe’s essay on techno-scientific hubris. We expect to read more of Chris project introducing Bihouix’s work to the English-speaking world.
    Contributions of such significant work are very welcome.
    We see as yet very little reporting in media of important resource limits to UK targets for carbon emissions (see also Recent Post): nothing I could find in the Telegraph or Guardian or BBC.
