Thinking Allowed: Green Psychology (Ralph Metzner) – Part 1 (2000)
How did we lose the connection to nature in our psychology? Host Jeffrey Mishlove and Ralph Metzner, author of Green Psychology, discuss the stages in history that developed the current psyche of domination, creating the current environmental crisis.
Although extinctions and changes in the planet have occurred before, they have never been caused by a single species. They discuss indigenous people and their greater connection to the planet, and Metzner argues that our encouragement of third and fourth world nations to develop is similar to colonialism.
