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
