Utilizing Francois Laruelle's "non-philosophical" method, Smith constructs a unified theory of philosophical theology and ecology by challenging environmental philosophy and theology, claiming that and engagement with scientific ecology can radically change the standard metaphysics of nature, as well as ethical problems related to "the natural".

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Ecology is often the object of overly simple and inadequate philosophies; the revision of our naturalist and philosophical concepts should, however, go together. This is the aim of Anthony Paul Smith's investigation which makes use of the 'non-philosophical' hypothesis so as to bring these new relations between nature and thought up to date. A great book that masterfully takes these problems head on, theology among them, and renews the analysis and significance of ecology.' - Francois Laruelle, Professor Emeritus, Contemporary Philosophy, University of Paris X: Ouest-Nanterre-La Defense, France

"The scientific study of nature is more complex than simple ecological epigrams would indicate; on the other hand, philosophy is more arduous than many scientists concede. Anthony Paul Smith inhabits both fields authentically and this important work shows the fruit of his interdisciplinary labors. We will be discussing the central theses of this pathfinding book for many decades.' - Liam Heneghan, Professor, Environmental Science, Co-Director, the Institute for Nature and Culture, DePaul University, USA

'In this highly-original book, Anthony Paul Smith sketches the contours of a new discipline: ecological thinking - not simply an ecological metaphysics but a metaphysics formed through thinking ecologically. Constructing a dialogue between Francois Laruelle, philosophical theology, and scientific ecology, he enables these ways of thinking to invade each other and cohabit together. Ground-breaking and timely, this book sets the cutting edge for contemporary thinking.' - Philip Goodchild, Professor, Religion and Philosophy, University of Nottingham, UK
