The Integral Ecology Reading Group Schedule

A handful of philosophy blogs have planned a close reading of Sean Hargens' and Michael Zimmerman's massive Integral Ecology: Uniting Multiple Perspectives on the Natural World. They have just posted the reading schedule at their various blogs - this comes from Immanence, a blog by Adrian Ivakhiv.

I will try to keep you posted on what they think about the book and/or about AQAL - they are nearly inseparable in this book - or you can follow along for yourself at the links below.
