In Honor of Leszek Kołakowski
Universalism and Holism in Ecology
Praxis, especially the daily decisonmaking of political praxis, should, if possible, be accompanied by theoretical reflection. Such reflection helps view matters from a proper distance, separate that what is temporary and short-lived from the endurable and timeless and the unordered, spontaneous and accidental from the systemized, planned and well-probed. A long-year university staffer mainly dealing with the economy of natural resource exploitation, for the past decade I have also been in the fortunate position to work on the political scene as an employee of the Ministry of the Environment.
