In EcoMind, Frances Moore LappĂ©Â—a giant of the environmental movementÂ—confronts accepted wisdom of environmentalism. Drawing on the latest research from anthropology to neuroscience and her own field experience, she argues that the biggest challenge to human survival isnâ€™t our fossil fuel dependency, melting glaciers, or other calamities. Rather, itâ€™s our faulty way of thinking about these environmental crises that robs us of power. LappĂ© dismantles seven common Â“thought trapsâ€ťÂ—from limits to growth to the failings of democracyÂ— that belie what we now know about nature, including our own, and offers contrasting Â“thought leapsâ€ť that reveal our hidden power. Like her Diet for a Small Planet classic, EcoMind is challenging, controversial and empowering.
