The description on this page seems a bit radical compared to the current social ecology thinking. I don't think current social ecology work is accurately described as 'anarchistic'.

• I agree with the comment above. I've been researching the concept of social ecology a lot for an essay, and there seems to be good evidence to say that there are at least 2 quite separate streams of development of the term:
• Bookchin's "social ecology" anarchist-related concept developed in the 1960s
• the concept of more directly applying ideas from plant and animal ecological thinking to human systems, which some trace to Robert_E._Park and others of the Chicago_school_(sociology), e.g. their 1925 book "The City".
• Any thoughts on this? I can provide some references that'd substantiate this view I think.

I agree with the concerns that this radical definition of social ecology is far from its current incarnation.

## Modern & Contemporary

Just so that we're clear, I'm tagging this article as falling under both the Modern and Contemporary task forces. While this may seem contradictory, I base this on the point that Social ecology was conceived of during the modern age, and then resurrected in the contemporary age.--Cast (talk) 22:44, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
