Society and Nature (1992-1995)

Between 1992 and 1995, the Institute supported the publication of 7 issues of the journal Society and Nature, which was edited by ISE alumnus Pavlos Stavropoulos in Colorado, along with Takis Fotopolous in the U.K. and several colleagues in Greece, who published a Greek-language edition. In 1995, the journal changed its name to Democracy and Nature and, over time, its focus shifted away from social ecology. Archives, including the full text of many articles, can be found at www.democracynature.org. Takis Fotopoulos continues to publish the International Journal of Inclusive Democracy, which he founded in 2004.

Harbinger Vol. 3 No. 1 — Buttercups and Sunflowers: On the Evolution of First and Second Nature
