Dr Stephen Harding

Stephan Harding oversees the MSc in Holistic Science at Schumacher College, Totnes. Since childhood he has had a deep fascination with the natural world, and his scientific cast of mind lead him to do a degree in Zoology at the University of Durham and then a doctorate on the behavioural ecology of the muntjac deer at Oxford University. After Oxford Stephan was appointed Visiting Professor in Wildlife Management at the National University in Costa Rica, where he lived for two years before becoming a founder member of Schumacher College in 1990. The College’s first teacher was James Lovelock, with whom Stephan has maintained a long-lasting friendship and scientific collaboration that culminated in their joint appointment as chair holders of the Arne Naess Chair in Global Justice and the Environment at the University of Oslo. He is the author of Animate Earth: Science, Intuition and Gaia (2006, Green Books, UK, and Chelsea Green, USA).
