Joanna R. Macy

Eco-philosopher Joanna Macy, PhD, is a scholar of Buddhism, general systems theory, and deep ecology. A respected voice in the movements for peace, justice, and ecology, she interweaves her scholarship with five decades of activism. Her wide-ranging work addresses psychological and spiritual issues of the nuclear age, the cultivation of ecological awareness, and the fruitful resonance between Buddhist thought and contemporary science. The many dimensions of this work are explored in her books, including Mutual Causality in Buddhism and General Systems Theory (1991); In Praise of Mortality (2004) with Anita Barrows; Coming Back to Life: Practices to Reconnect Our Lives, Our World (1998) with Molly Young Brown; and, most recently, Pass It On: Five Stories That Can Change the World (2010) with Norbert Gahbler.
