The “eco” in ecopsychology reveals to us a lot about the future direction that ecopsychology can go in. With the integration of oikos and psyche we have the emergence of a transdisciplinary space, the study of which can inform us about our deep interconnectedness with the earth, our home. While oikos was originally relevant to the economic management of the ancient Greek household, it is now integral to the ecological management of the whole earth. This is because human failure to understand and respect our organic connections to ecology will ultimately lead to failure of our globally interconnected economy and culture.
