The Environmental Battle Hymn of the Stoic God (pages 51-68)

Kai Whiting, Aldo Dinucci, Edward Simpson, and Leonidas Konstantakos

ABSTRACT: In Stoic theology, the universe constitutes a living organism. Humankind has often had a detrimental impact on planetary health. We propose that the Stoic call to live according to Nature, where God and Nature are one and the same, provides a philosophical basis for re-addressing environmental degradation. We discuss the value of the logocentric framework and aligning oneself with Divine will and natural law (as stated by reason) in order that living beings can thrive.
