Abstract:The ecological wisdom from cross-cultural and religious insights provides needed historical references, guidance and ethical ideals for the ecological crisis. However, while supporting the project undertaken in Earth's Insights, this article challenges the tools used to develop a postmodern worldview. The lack of adequate discussions about the postmodern discourses, the new science, a 'universal' postmodern worldview, and the infusing of cross-cultural ecological ethics into such a worldview, leave the project vulnerable and utopian.
