Bender calls our culture of extinction. Bender criticizes many of industrial societys basic assumptions, for example, that we humans are superior to animals, that the Bible justifies our dominion over the Earth, or that we are evolutions highest products.

He also reveals the underlying connections between mechanistic science and Earths devastation under capitalism, and he points out that major modernist philosophies, from Bacon and Descartes to 20th-century empiricism, are in the service of the culture of extinction. In conclusion, he offers a way of integrating the many insights of the different environmentalist movements and discusses practical steps to make our culture more environmentally friendly.
