    Abstract:
    This book approaches the contemporary environmental crisis as a crisis of civilisation and as a call to generate a new way of life. The purpose of the book is to bring philosophical perspectives concerning reason and freedom to bear upon the moral, economic and ecological crisis of modernity with a view to constituting the good life. The book proceeds from a commitment to the good, the true and the beautiful as established by Pythagoras and developed by Plato. The attempt is made to overcome the bifurcation of culture and nature to show reason as the realisation of nature.
