The 14th of January marks 100 years of Murray Bookchin's birth. This is a significant anniversary for us as we believe his thought, always political and directed towards radical social change, is of crucial importance for our future. For this reason we chose to invite some of the contributors of the book Enlightenment and Ecology to a dialogue about Bookchin's legacy today.

About Enlightenment and Ecology

Throughout his life, prophetic American philosopher Murray Bookchin created social ecology as a comprehensive social program for the challenges of our present era. Through tireless teaching, speaking, organizing, and writing, Bookchin presented a humanist vision of ecology based on community, direct democracy, and the better promises of the Enlightenment, showing how we could transform our society into one that is free and egalitarian. Enlightenment and Ecology is an international collection of commemorative essays by scholars and activists who have each incorporated the ideas of social ecology into their own work. This book also examines how the Kurdish freedom movement is using Bookchin’s utopian ideas. In a time of urgent need for radical change, these essays provide both precious historical lessons and a transformative road map. #100yearsMurrayBookchin
