Today “ecology” has been co-opted to refer to almost any set of generalized ideas about environment or process, rendering the term essentially meaningless.

To recover a critical sense of ecology as a specific set of ideas—at once environmental, social, and mental (as Félix Guattari would argue)—that can continue to inform design thinking and practice, we start by identifying three important and parallel genealogies of ecology over the past three decades: in the natural sciences, the humanities, and design.
