Abstract
The problems of racism' and environmental destruction seem the most persistent and insoluble in our society. There seems to be an ideological blind spot as to these two issues. Our ability to find solutions seems hindered by emotions, circularity and self-referencing arguments that block meaningful analysis. Much of this inability stems from the "eurocentric" patterns of thought that have come to dominate views of nature and other peoples different in creed, religion, culture and color of skin.
