1. Ecology, Community and Lifestyle: Outline of an Ecosophy
2. Is It Painful To Think: Conversations with Arne Naess
3. The Ecology of Wisdom / Modern environmentalism owes a great debt to philosopher, professor and writer Arne Naess, co-founder of the Deep Ecology movement. Here, editors Alan Drengson and Bill Devall provide a comprehensive but accessible volume of his most groundbreaking and seminal essays, which have remained influential among environmentalists to this very day. An essential anthology from one of modern environmentalism's most important and relevant voices.
4. The Selected Works of Arne Naess: Volumes 1-10 / The Selected Works of Arne Naess (SWAN) presents a major overview of Arne Naess’s thinking and provides an extensive collection of this prolific philosopher’s principal writings. Some of Naess’s most important publications have never before been available in English. Many others are out of print. Often, his papers were published in obscure and inaccessible journals. And because Naess has been so prolific, many of his most important papers still remain unpublished. The publication of SWAN makes Naess’s work more fully accessible to scholars, students, and critics alike.
