Nothing Lowly in the Universe: An Integral Approach to the Ecological Crisis explores the connections between the scientific, technological, economic, cultural, psychological and religious forces driving the crisis and shows how we can transform the ways of thinking and living that got us here. Drawing on the Quaker testimonies of integrity, reciprocity, nonviolence, simplicity, and the fundamental equality of the whole earth community, on other wisdom traditions, and on the work of visionaries from Gandhi and Arne Naess to E.F. Schumacher and Thomas Berry, Jennie M. Ratcliffe explores the spiritual principles of an integrated deep ecology, economy and peace, and shows how they are being put into practice around the world.
Jennie M. Ratcliffe is an environmental research scientist, Quaker, and activist. She lives in Hillsborough, North Carolina, and is a long-time member of Durham Friends Meeting (NC).
