Western historical complicity in Israel s nuclear program is unutterable yet undeniable, a subject area for scholars focused on techno-politics and the intelligence community. Circumventing the democratic process,Dimona s history is evinced and encapsulated by shadowy scientism, mockingbird journalism,compartmented bureaucracies, clandestine corporatism and great power imperialism. In October 1956 Israel acquired from France an atomic weapons reactor, and over the ensuing years would receive furtive support from every continent save Asia. Led by the CIA, as early as 1958 the U.S. was cognizant of Dimona s existence yet chose silent inaction. When Dimona was publicly unveiled in December 1960, the U.S. denied any foreknowledge of the facility, with the obsequious U.S. press promulgating in the ensuing decade that Dimona was a peaceful project. Even though Dimona constitutes the conflict s paramount catalyst,the U.S. prevented the atom from emerging as the defining subject of the Six Day War historiography. Using Egypt as its proxy, the U.S.S.R.'s intention to militarily extirpate the Negev reactor represents an understudied Cold War dimension of Israel's nuclear history.

The global ecological crisis is the greatest challenge humanity has ever had to confront, and humanity is failing. The triumph of the neo-liberal agenda, together with a debauched 'scientism', has reduced nature and people to nothing but raw materials, instruments and consumers to be efficiently managed in a global market dominated by corporate managers, media moguls and technocrats. The arts and the humanities have been devalued, genuine science has been crippled, and the quest for autonomy and democracy undermined. The resultant trajectory towards global ecological destruction appears inexorable, and neither governments nor environmental movements have significantly altered this, or indeed, seem able to. The Philosophical Foundations of Ecological Civilization is a wide-ranging and scholarly analysis of this failure. This book reframes the dynamics of the debate beyond the discourses of economics, politics and techno-science. Reviving natural philosophy to align science with the humanities, it offers the categories required to reform our modes of existence and our institutions so that we augment, rather than undermine, the life of the ecosystems of which we are part. From this philosophical foundation, the author puts forth a manifesto for transforming our culture into one which could provide an effective global environmental movement and provide the foundations for a global ecological civilization.
