The article connects three arguments from Arne Naess, Alfred North Whitehead and Hans Jonas, which share an initial critical reference to the problem of the ontological separation between «primary» and «secondary qualities». Environmentally relevant consequences are drawn from the three arguments within an ecosophical frame. Through relational, processual and organicistic arguments these three authors put forth alternative perspectives to the subject-object dichotomy and the consequent mentality of domination that belongs to a subject who externally observes reality. The purpose of this outline is to put forth a relational perspective on identity of selves, that produces a practical attitude of «letting be» and respect of «otherness», and the very possibility of thinking a principle of «egalitarianism».
