The Educational Legacy of Lewis Mumford and Ian McHarg - by William J. Cohen

"In order to secure human survival we must transition from a technological culture to an ecological culture." - Lewis Mumford

In Ecohumanism and the Ecological Culture, William Cohen shows how Mumford's conception of an educational philosophy was enacted by Mumford's mentee, Ian McHarg, the renowned landscape architect and regional planner at the University of Pennsylvania.

  • McHarg advanced a new way to achieve an ecological culture―through an educational curriculum based on fusing ecohumanism to the planning and design disciplines.
