This essay begins by tracing the conceptual ancestry of the term “eco” as the same root for both “ecology” and “economics:” where ecology concerns the logos of oikos; economics concerns the nomos of oikos. This set of observations on “eco” is used to introduce Heidegger’s musing on “dwelling” as a source for con- ceptions of “deep ecology.” The essay then, inquires of the coming of the ecological university and frames an ethic of responsibility. Finally, the essay provides an inter- pretation of what accepting this ethic might mean for the university.
