(p.18) Chapter 1 Sustainability and Environmental Philosophy
The Agrarian Vision

Paul B. Thompson

University Press of Kentucky

Environmentalism is often used to indicate a loosely organized social movement that emerged in the closing decades of the nineteenth century. The idea of sustainability has considerably broadened the concerns of the environmental movement and, at the same time, has helped bring environmentalism itself into the mainstream. Sustainability and environmental action alike involve implicit, unstated assumptions about the principal aims and focus of the environmental social movement. Agriculture then is a key to humanity's impact on the environment. The agricultural focus can be expanded even further if one looks comes at it from a scientific or policy-based perspective.

Keywords:   mainstream, agriculture, humanity, science, social movement
