As a pioneer of the ecology movement, a teacher who inspired generations of students and colleagues, and a scholar and writer whose work continues to grow in influence, Paul Shepard's profound contribution to our understanding of what it means to be human-especially in relation to other animals and our evolutionary past, but also to our culture and to each other-is central to his public legacy.
Theodore Roszak called him "our premier environmental philosopher." Kirkpatrick Sale said he was "one of the few great ecological thinkers of our [20th] century, and may even belong in that special pantheon where such solons as Lewis Mumford, Rachel Carson, Fritz Schumacher and Jacques Ellul reside."
"Paul Shepard's work represents one of the most important syntheses available today on the subject of the human condition," said Morris Berman. "Paul Shepard is the most brilliant and provocative intellect of our time," said Dave Foreman. Garrett Hardin described him as "Poetical as D.H.Lawrence, wide-ranging as Darwin, Paul Shepard illuminates the predicament of modern man."
"Much of what we value in contemporary thought about 'nature and culture' grew up in the seedbed of Paul Shepard's thinking. His Writing about child development, physical and cultural anthropology animal behavior, art and mythology, the history of agriculture and other subjects is endlessly stimulating." Barry Lopez, Author of Arctic Dreams
Peter Matthiessen called him "An exceptionally clear thinker who is also a lucid and exhilarating writer...His work is valuable but very urgent, shining in the sun like the tip of a vast iceberg of knowledge and reflection that supports it."
