Yesterday we have an excited discussion about Merchant, C’ book< Death of Nature: Women, Ecology, and the Scientific Revolution>. To be honest I have to admit that as a philosophy concept I am not familiar with the concept Ecofeminism, I felt it is hard to define it. But is very interesting to find the connection between nature and women. Using the gender theory is a clever way to help me as a student who lacking of background know exactly the relationship between human being with nature. On certain level I agree with Carolyn Merchant that, the mechanistic worldview which ruled our thinking after the scentific revolution made the world became to a dead matter. I have deep impression about comparing the relationship between men and women to the relationship between human being and nature.In a long term men have dominated the nature, set up social rules that more often good for them. Women always be put in the corner, under the power shadow of man. As human being, the successful economic and technical develop have made us believe in that, we could do whatever no matter what the nature would suffer. Like in the past time man used be serviced by women, today we still used to be seviced by nature. But women should not belong to men, they must be treated as same as what men got. The same with nature, look at in historical view, nature never belong to human being, but we human being actually belong to them. We are part of nature, we should always remind ourseleves the point.
