Interview by Jan Van Boeckel

This interview with Naess by Jan van Boeckel was held as part of the production of the film The Call of the Mountain: Arne Naess and the Deep Ecology Movement (1997). Naess talks of his special relation to the place where the conversation is being recorded: Tvergastein, Naess’s cabin at 1,505 meters above sea-level. Some of the many other themes that are taken up are Gestalt thinking, Spinoza, the difference between basic and vital needs, and the freedom of being above the tree line.
