Ecojustice is a new term, used in this section to represent the holistic ways of knowing ourselves in relation to others (Thayer-Bacon 2003). It guides questions of how we should live in relation to, and nurture the Earth with, other people. In many ways, it is a theory of integrated relations, which is impossible to distance from humans and the more-than-human (Abram 1996). Ecojustice reminds us to seek schools where much of education happens in a way that is more fully realized through John Dewey’s classical theory of participatory democracy (Dewey 1916/1966), yet not limited to a realm of sociocultural knowledge and scientific endeavor as the best method.

Bowers (1999) points out, such a mindset is the result of deeply embedded and discursively reproduced ideological forms that represent modern industrial processes as the most “evolved” even while they are killing us: “A form of cultural intelligence that ignores how toxins introduced into the environment disrupt the reproductive patterns of different forms of life jeopardizes its immediate members as well as future generations” (p. 169). This is a system of short-term achievements that values, even argues for, individual profit over life.
