Environmental Values

On Economization and Ecologization as Civilizing Processes

C. Schmidt

Environmental Values 2(1993): 33-46. doi: 10.3197/096327193776679963

In this article the meaning and main phases of 'economization' as a civilizing process are outlined. It is argued that 'ecologization' of the current political-economic regime can in a certain sense be regarded as a continuation of this development. Due attention is given to social conditions which may be favourable or impedimental to an ecologization of 'the economy'. It is pleaded that environmental policies should used the so-called trickle-down effect to their advantage.
