I am writing an essay on ecological ethics entitled: Symbioetics: Homo sapiens in the fabric of life. 

My intention would be to finish it during my staying at Faber. The index, as currently thought, is as follows:

Preface: Ethics to avoid the worst

1. We need thinking outside the walls

2. Does nature not exist?

3. Does it make sense to continue evoking transitions to sustainable industrial societies?

4. Ethics for sustainability as a Gaian ethic

5. Conscious life that wants to live in the midst of other lives that want to live

6. Symbioetics: Homo sapiens in the fabric of life

7. Are we too many? Reflections on the population question

8. An out-of-context ethical utopia: positive animalist intervention in nature
