present the view that critical realism is indeed a worthy intellectual tradition to carry forward and further develop the work of the founders of Nordic ecophilosophy.It was clear at the seminar that there was a promising convergence of interests and themes in the two approaches- while at the same time, within the Nordic ecophilosophical tradition, there was appreciation of the capacity of critical realism, with its provision? of a robust philosophical ontology and generation of totalizing immanent critiques of Western philosophy, to provide an expansive and secure home for the development of ecophilosophical work generally.If there is a single overarching theme of critical realist philosophy, it surely must be that of the unity of theory and practice, which Bhaskar, following Hegel, has also called seriousness.

This makes the applicability, relevance and actionability of critical realism key considerations for critical realists. There can be no doubt that this concern was shared fully by the Nordic ecophilosophers- and this quality of? seriousness is a striking feature of the Nordic contributions presented in this book.
