This Special Issue will focus on a variety of sustainability-related themes connected with the notion of organic community, including an ecological perspective in a philosophical context. The issue of organicism in community organization has been highlighted recently due to the trends in alienation and shortening of attention spans, with certain consequences for the quality of interpersonal communication, all of which has been produced by a rise in the use of Internet-based communication technologies. Although responses to these problems have been proposed in various veins, including medication for children who suffer from technologically-induced shortening of attention spans and weakening of affect controls, a key line of argumentation is emerging that seeks to explore and elaborate upon the various aspects of organicism in interpersonal communication as a fundamental aspect of sustainable interpersonal relationships in an increasingly technologically dominated world. This Special Issue will focus on several aspects of organicism, including those related to ecology, the economy, personal well-being, psychotherapy, social functionality, and contribution to the community.
The Special Issue will focus on the notion of ecosystem and apply it equally to organic communities as ecosystems for values that promote the quality of human life, and a critical examination of individual and group values in a practical context. Simultaneously, the concept of ecosystem will be addressed in the context of global environmental challenges, including climate change, using the practical concepts from philosophy and promoting the notion of eco-philosophy within the discourse of business. The Special Issue will welcome conceptual models, empirical studies, case studies, and other qualitative studies on sustainable communities or business ecosystems. Our Special Issue will provide a new orientation for fostering the practical concept of eco-philosophy in diverse domains of human activities.
