|"The year 1974 marks the inception of Eco-Philosophy. In the text, which was delivered in ten minutes (during a debate at a School of Architecture in London), all the major ideas of Eco-philosophy were proposed. At this time I use the term Ecological Humanism to designate the future Eco-philosophy." Click for large image >|

In 2005 Henryk Skolimowski published Philosophy for a New Civilization in New Delhi, India. This book is an invitation to another kind of philosophy ... not abstract, dry and indifferent to life, but compassionate, holistic, caring and guiding life. Basically it is a book about a philosophy, which may change your life, if you take it seriously.
Published in 2010, "Let There be Light: The Mysterious Journey of Cosmic Creativity" is Dr. Skolimowski's most recent work, and is perhaps most the most accessible (and most necesssary) to the general public. In the cover notes he writes, "At the beginning was light. Light — pure, distilled, triumphant and overwhelming in its unity and possibilities. Out of this Light came everything that we call Cosmos, Universie and Life. The story of the Universe is the story of the evolving Light, which is intertwined with Love."
