"Issues of ecology: genesis of ideas and modernity" (by Theodor Oizerman) asserts that materialist
notion of history has to theoretically interiorize recent historical experiences getting rid of aspects not
substantiated by time examination. Inter alia, proponents of historical materialism have to incorporate
ecological Weltanschauung in the body of their thinking bringing it accord with their fundamental ideas.
In this context, author (a prominent student of materialist analysis of the universe) proceeds to scrutinize
making of ecological ideology within the history of materialism. Among the topics discussed are
departure points and their contradictions, destructive effects of negating or ignoring links present here.
