Praise from readers
"As I read The Ecology of Care, I had the feeling that Didi Pershouse & I had been singing from the same hymn book. Our early lives & educations were very different. She has spent time learning about & treating human maladies. I spent many years learning about & treating animals. It appears, however, that we have reached, by different paths, the conclusion that health for humans, for animals, & for the environment is determined by the quality of the relationships between these entities.
Healthy humans require wholesome food which requires healthy plants & animals which require healthy soil & healthy water. Humans are a prideful bunch, certain that our technology can solve all problems when much of the time we don't recognize that the problems we attack are really only symptoms of underlying faults in our philosophy.
Pershouse points out clearly that our needs are not for stronger medicines, bigger machines, or more powerful poisons but for better understanding of the ecology (relationships) of our world and how we can be regenerative rather than destructive in our daily lives."
