The ecophilosophical project is driven by the conviction that the endemic environmental problems that presently confront us have not been caused by mere human carelessness, but are the direct consequence of certain beliefs and assumptions being deeply entrenched in dominant Western discourse. Ecophilosophers maintain that due to a culturally legitimated faith in the validity of oppressive and destructive ideologies, humanity has seen fit to engage in systemically oppressive and destructive activities that have resulted in the current global crisis. Accordingly, ecophilosophers have sought to expose the flaws inherent in ecologically destructive ideologies and to envision models of thinking conducive to humanity's continued existence in a more-than-human world.
