1. PRESENT PRACTICES HAVE PRODUCED ECOLOGICAL DISASTER Ladelle McWhorter, Professor of Philosophy, Northeast Missouri State, HEIDEGGER AND THE EARTH, 1992, p.2.Thinking today must concern itself with the earth. Wherever we turn - on newsstands, onthe airwaves, and in even the most casual of conversations everywhere - we are inundated by predictions of ecological catastrophe and omnicidal doom. And many of these predictions bear themselves out n our own experience. We now live with the ugly, painful, and impoverishing consequences of decades of technological innovation andexpansion without restraint, of at least a century of disastrous "natural resourcemanagement" policies, and of more than two centuries of virtually unchecked industrial pollution - consequences that include the fact that millions of us on any given day aresuffering, many of us dying of diseases and malnutrition that are the results of humanly produced ecological devastation; the fact that thousands of species now in existence willno longer exist on this planet by the turn of the century; the fact that our planet's climatehas been altered, probably irreversibly, by the carbon dioxide and chlorofluorocarbons wehave heedlessly poured into our atmosphere; and the mind-boggling fact that it may now be within humanity's power to destroy all life on this globe.2. MODERN SCIENCE DESTROYS THE EARTH AND DEBASES LIFE.Arthur Herman, Professor of History, George Mason, THE IDEA OF DECLINE INWESTERN HISTORY, 1997, p.336-7.The disasters "of world history in this century," Heidegger explained to his audiences,were the result of the Western "will to will." This is modem man's "unconditionalobjectification of everything present." Like his Frankfurt School contemporaries, he sawthis relentless will to will symbolized by modem science. The consequences arehorrifying: "the flight of the gods, the destruction of the earth, the standardization of man,the preeminence of the mediocre . . . the darkening of the world." He was forced toconclude: "The spiritual decline of the planet is so far advanced that the nations are indanger of losing the last bit of spiritual energy that makes it possible to see the decline . .. and appraise it as such."3
