June 2011: As the summer ripens in the northern hemisphere, there is much to announce within the realms of Eco-philosophical endeavors. First, this year marks the thirtieth anniversary of "Eco-Philosophy: Designing New Tactics for Living," Dr. Skolimowski's seminal work that launched the serious codification of thought and experience related to the philosophy of ecology. After the publication of the book, Dr. Skolimowski formalized the study of this infant-yet-ancient lens on our world with the opening of the Eco-Philosophy Centre in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Most notable is the publication of Dr. Skolimowski's autobiography "The Lotus and the Mud: Autobiography of a Philosopher." Details are available on the Publications page. Comments on the publication of the work, and a review by Professor Vir Singh, are available on the Articles page.
Dr. Skolimowski has published a new book of poetry, "Celebrating Light and Hope." Images of the publication ceremony, held March 16 in India, are on the Gallery page.

The second video contains a dialogue between Dr. Skolimowski and David Skrbina, covering the importance of philosophy in the modern world.

A bold promotion of Light as a basic component of the structure of the Universe, the book is a rational and concordant exploration of the nature of the Cosmos. Dr. Skolimowski offers a fair-minded and pointed criticism of organized religion as a dimming and distorting filter of the true clarity of Light.
