Marxism and Ecology
Title: Marxism and Ecology
Author: GRUNDMANN, Reiner
Citation: Oxford, Clarendon Press/New York, Oxford University Press, 1991, Marxist introductions
In this book Grundmann argues that Marx's theory of human nature and his evolutionary thinking are cogent tools for understanding basic traits of industrial countries and the ecological problems they produce. He challenges the widespread belief that the development of productive forces is by itself a threat to the environment, arguing that only specific technologies, not technology as such, lead to environmental degradation. He concludes that the pursuit of productivity and the development of a healthy environment need not be mutually exclusive.
