Body ecology: a new philosophy through cosmotic emersiology

Bernard Andrieu, Petrucia da Nobrega, Olivier Sirost

announced: 21. 06. 2018


Body ecology is a micro-ecology. It is a discipline derived from philosophical naturism, deep ecology and holistic body-mind practices developed since 1850 in the corporeal experience of body recreation, outdoor living, and body awakening techniques using emersiology. It is because we transform the practices of individuals that ecology is transformed. This paper seeks to explain the new discipline of body ecology, and its focus on the significance of micro-situations and micro-experiences.
