SERIES EDITOR’S INTRODUCTION 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. For more information on Naess’s theory of normative systems, see “Notes on the methodology of normative systems” in volume X of the Selected Works. For details on his application of normative systems, see Communication and Argument (SWAN VII) and Gandhi and Group Conflict (SWAN V) as well as Naess’s discussion of Ecosophy T and “Philosophy of wolf policies I” in SWAN X. For an entire book dedicated to exploring the Gandhian premise “Any human conflict can be justifiably resolved through nonviolence,” see Naess’s Gandhi and the Nuclear Age, translated by Alastair Hannay (Totowa, NJ: Bedminster Press, 1965).

We decided early on that the level of editing required to bring the prior publications up to the high standards of contemporary academic philosophical publishing would necessitate revised editions. We also decided that since we were preparing revised editions and Naess was alive and could review the work, we would make the role of the editor invisible and not include tedious footnotes chronicling all the changes, however significant they might be. The historical significance, intricacy, and sheer magnitude of Interpretation and Preciseness (SWAN I) warranted special consideration.

This book has not been included in the Selected Works because it is widely available and currently in print. Volume X is the first comprehensive collection of Naess’s work on deep ecology—it includes a broad array of articles on its history, influences, theory, development, practice, and prospects. This volume shows how deep ecology represents the integration and culmination of Naess’s lifelong interests in philosophy, social research, activism, science, and nature. It demonstrates how Naess, in his explication and elaboration of deep ecology, draws extensively from both his life experience and his research on empirical semantics, scientific and cultural pluralism, Pyrrhonic scepticism, Spinozistic nondualism and activeness in relation to problems, gestalt ontology, normative systems theory, total views, and Gandhi’s concepts of self-realization and nonviolent communication.
