Home Place Series
Inside-Outside
Exploring Human Ecology with J. Stan Rowe

Replaces the human-centered concept of environment with ecosystems.

"Presented effectively and...well-made...Recommended." Video Librarian

INSIDE-OUTSIDE, the first program in the "Home Place" series, explores the problem of recognizing and understanding ecosystems from within their boundaries. Images of Earth from space have provided us with a view from outside, making possible a new, more complete perspective. This program discards the human-centered concept of environment, replacing it with a more universal idea of ecosystems. The ecosphere concept is introduced as an alternate world view, in which Earth itself is conceived as a living organism, as an ecological being.

Other titles in the series are:

Life Cycles - Life is a property of Earth.

Partnership - Changing our present exploitative relationship with Earth to one of partnership.

Going Home - Ways to reconnect with the Earth.
