Using the writings of Theodore Roosevelt, Aldo Leopold, Holmes Rolston III, and Warwick Fox as representative, Kheel (visiting scholar at the Graduate Theological Union) criticizes holist nature philosophy as being concerned with "species," "the ecosystem," or "the biotic community" while neglecting individual beings. She argues that this perspective, which allows the killing of wolves in order to save "the wolf," results from a masculinist ideology that "idealizes the transcendence of the biological realm, as represented by other-than-human animals and affiliative ties." She presents ecofeminism as an alternative ideology that would allow for an integrated respect for both the "biotic whole" and individual non-human beings.
