Composed of scholars such as Joseph Campbell, Alan Watts, Fritjof Capra, Theodore Roszak, and Sam Keen, the New-Paradigm movement purports that Western culture is reintegrating an ecological, feminine impulse into its dominantly masculine, rational value system. By surveying the scholarship and focusing its message, this study shows how the West's valorization of reason, control, and progress forced the awareness of nature's balance as exhibited in Earth wisdom, underground for over two millenia, until the spiritual revolution of the 1960s initiated an extensive attempt to reintegrate it.
