He proposes ideas such as dissensus, dissidence, resingularisation, break up and multiplicity. Ecosophy, he argues, provides for an ethico-political and ethico-aesthetic articulation in three ecologies or three ecological registers: the environment or nature , social relations and human subjectivity.
They are not distinct territories but formed relationally and transversally. He states that. Process, which I oppose here to system or to structure, strives to capture existence in the very act of its constitution, definition and deterritorialisation. For Guattari, consensus is not the appropriate response; instead, a dissensus and singularisation will need to be cultivated.
This act of subjectification and singularisation somehow exemplifies eco-logic — it is a break. Resingularisation means that individuals, organisations and professions become more united and increasingly different — difference multiplies — and creatively autonomous. In his formulation of the principles of the three ecologies, Guattari, he identifies the principle common to each being that it is.
Social ecology — concerns the development of affective and pragmatic cathexis in human groups of differing sizes; corresponds to a specifically qualitative reorganisations of primary subjectivity as it relates to mental ecology; favour processual semiotics diagrammatic rather than iconic i. Environmental ecology — anything is possible; national equilibriums will be increasingly reliant on human intervention e. And yet, ultimately, we will only escape from the major crises of our era through the articulation of.
Throughout the text, he makes references to art and urban planning, indicating that relational — albeit tangled — pathways across the three ecologies are possible; for Guattari this is tranversality, which presents as a potential for interdisciplinarity, and a critical trajectory for new forms of practice.

The Earth is undergoing a period of intense techno-scientific transformations. Alongside these upheavals, human modes of life, both individual and collective, are progressively deteriorating. Tourism, for example, usually amounts to no more than a journey on the spot, with the same redundancies of images and behaviour. Political groupings and executive authorities appear to be totally incapable of understanding the full implications of these issues.
The Three Ecologies
Ecosophy or ecophilosophy a portmanteau of ecological philosophy is a philosophy of ecological harmony or equilibrium. In part Guattari's use of the term demarcates a necessity for the proponents of social liberation, whose struggles in the 20th century were dominated by the paradigm of social revolution, to embed their arguments within an ecological framework which understands the interconnections of social and environmental spheres. Guattari holds that traditional environmentalist perspectives obscure the complexity of the relationship between humans and their natural environment through their maintenance of the dualistic separation of human cultural and nonhuman natural systems; he envisions ecosophy as a new field with a monistic and pluralistic approach to such study. Ecology in the Guattarian sense, then, is a study of complex phenomena, including human subjectivity, the environment, and social relations, all of which are intimately interconnected. Despite this emphasis on interconnection, throughout his individual writings and more famous collaborations with Gilles Deleuze , Guattari has resisted calls for holism, preferring to emphasize heterogeneity and difference, synthesizing assemblages and multiplicities in order to trace rhizomatic structures rather than creating unified and holistic structures. Without modifications to the social and material environment, there can be no change in mentalities. Here, we are in the presence of a circle that leads me to postulate the necessity of founding an "ecosophy" that would link environmental ecology to social ecology and to mental ecology.

Qty :. Extending the definition of ecology to encompass social relations and human subjectivity as well as environmental concerns, The Three Ecologies argues that the ecological crises that threaten our planet are the direct result of the expansion of a new form of capitalism and that a new ecosophical approach must be found which respects the differences between all living systems. A powerful critique of capitalism and a manifesto for a new way of thinking, the book is also an ideal introduction to the work of one of Europe's most radical thinkers. This edition includes a chronology of Guattari's life and work, introductions to both his general philosophy and to the work itself, and extended notes to the original text.
