The question of the relative merits of deep ecology and ecofeminism has recently received considerable attention within environmental framework. This question has obvious significance to anyone concerned with ecophilosophy and ecopolitics since it contrasts two of the most philosophically and socially influential approaches that have developed in response to ecological concerns. Many would agree that the two perspectives, deep ecology and ecofeminism, have much in common, notwithstanding their different theoretical histories. Some writers have begun to perceive a significant tension between these two perspectives. In this paper, I would like to consider first some of the points of contention in the deep ecology/ecofeminism debate. I would then try to show that ecofeminism at most modifies, in important ways, deep ecology’s negative analysis, and that, therefore, ecofeminist solutions are not logically incompatible with the negative side of the deep ecological framework. I, then, hope to show that such solutions may not be incompatible with deep ecology’s positive view either, at least with certain versions. I conclude that the tension between these two perspectives can, perhaps, be resolved if we take a multiple perspective approach described by the theory of context.
