Ecosofía, el arte de escuchar la Tierra
Ecosofía, el arte de escuchar la Tierra (Ecosophy, the art of listening to the Earth) is the title of the introduction to the book Ecosofía. La sabiduría de la Tierra (Ecosophy. The Wisdom of the Earth), edited, both in Spanish and Catalan, by the philosopher Jordi Pigem in which all the writings of Raimon Panikkar on his vision of Ecosophy are collected.
This introduction refers first of all to the triple birth of the concept of ecosophy by Guattari, Naës and Panikkar, synthesizing the different visions of each of them, and emphasizing the similarities of vision between the last two. It is then stated that the notion of Panikkar, which corresponds to that of the wisdom of the Earth itself as a living subject, which man must learn to hear again as it is part of a whole cosmoteandric. He concludes this introduction with a reflection on the Earth as a Whole Living, and the need for ecosophy to develop a healthy, harmonious and participatory relationship with the web of life, stating that the Earth knows what it does – much more than technocapitalism […]. Maybe, if we learn to listen to Her, she will show us the way.
