It is primarily intended as an introduction to the philosophy of ecology, known as deep ecology, and to the way Spinozas philosophy has been put to this aim. Only a self-realization, along the lines of Spinozas philosophy, can afford a philosophy of care which is inclusive of humans and the non-human world, which recognizes the need for civil laws and democratic politics for human flourishing.
