sustainability

Biophilic: (of, or under the spell of biophilia); a love of living systems and natural forms. Generally cited as first used by German philosopher Eric Fromm as the “attraction to life, and all that is vital.” Later developed by evolutionary psychologist E.O Wilson to describe an in-built need across living systems to associate and surround oneself with other other forms of life. A beautiful reading of the above has inspired permaculturists, eco-architecture, and sustainable design (as opposed to functionalistic modernism).

(Another thanks to my wife and angel of my better brain for discovering this during her work on sustainable textiles!)
