DERRICK JENSEN - EARTH DAY LECTURE, OTTAWA UNIVERSITY

Ottawa University Chapel, 1001 S. Cedar, Ottawa, KS

Hailed as the philosopher poet of the ecological movement, Derrick Jensen is the best-selling author of The Culture of Make Believe, A Language Older than Words, and Listening to the Land. His most recent work, Endgame, presents a passionate forecast of how industrial society, and the persistent and widespread violence it requires, is unsustainable. Jensen's intricate weaving together of history, philosophy, environmentalism, economics, literature and psychology has produced a powerful argument that demands attention.

"We are members of the most destructive culture ever to exist. Our assault on the natural world, on indigenous and other cultures, on women, on children, on all of us through the possibility of nuclear suicide and other means--all these are unprecedented in their magnitude and ferocity." So began my first book, Listening to the Land. Why do we act as we do? What are sane and effective responses to outrageously destructive behavior? What will it take for us to stop the horrors that characterize our way of being? My work and life revolve around these questions. http://www.derrickjensen.org/
