Just arrived on scholar Dot social. I am Michael Northcott, written a few books and taught a lot of PhDs in my time at Edinburgh Uni. Now at Universitas Gadjah Mada, Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Teaching ecology and religion. Researching waste issues in Bali/Java, writing a new book - God and Gaia - exploring the history of Being / ontology in dialectical engagement with Lovelock’s Gaia theory / Earth System theory. Never been done before, crazily interdisciplinary - just how I like it!
