ABSTRACT. This essay begins by tracing the conceptual ancestry of the term “eco” as the same root for both “ecology” and “economics:” where ecology concerns the logos of oikos; economics concerns the nomos of oikos. This set of observations on “eco” is used to introduce Heidegger’s musing on “dwelling” as a source for conceptions of “deep ecology.” The essay then inquires of the coming of the ecological university and frames an ethic of responsibility. Finally, the essay provides an interpretation of what accepting this ethic might mean for the university. pp. 60–69
