Fredy Perlman and David Watson were among those who started to go the heart of things fifty years ago. And they wrote with heart … grounded in biocentrism. Samuel Alexander is more pedestrian, but he’s more accessible and he currently shows us the way forward. Kirk Sale says the very deep things that no one else will say (“it’s not just problematic, it’s insane”). But he’s not as accessible as Samuel Alexander.

Fabian Scheidler may conceivably be the best messenger of them all. He goes around Europe lecturing (in a manner reminiscent of Charles Atterley in The Story of B):
