Most of Jensen's writing uses the first-person and personal experiences to construct arguments. His books are written like narratives, lacking a linear, hierarchical structure. They are not divided into distinct sections devoted to an individual argument. Instead, his writing is conversational, leaving one line of thought incomplete to move on to another, returning to the first again at some later point. Jensen uses this creative non-fiction style to combine his artistic voice with logical argument. Jensen often uses quotations as reference points for ideas explored in a chapter.
In , Jensen wrote Thought to Exist in the Wild with photographs by Karen Tweedy-Holmes , which discussed the keeping of animals in zoos on both a physical and philosophical level.

Derrick Jensen's views are broadly controversial.
The radical magazine CounterPunch , in addition to publishing interviews with and articles written by Jensen, has also published commentaries by others who are critical of the potential for Jensen's philosophy to lead followers towards nihilism due to his "apocalyptic" warnings. The organization Deep Green Resistance DGR , of which Jensen is a founding member, has been accused of transphobia in relation to its radical feminist advocacy.
According to DGR's radical feminism, gender refers to a patriarchal caste system rather than a subjective set of feelings about sexual identity.

Its members claim to be "critical of gender itself. We are not gender reformists—we are gender abolitionists. Jensen has rarely commented publicly on transgender politics, although in his book Endgame , Jensen does briefly mention transgender people, along with other marginalized groups , in a call for political solidarity. I believe that women have the right to bathe, sleep, gather, and organize free from the presence of men," in response to DGR members denying a transgender woman membership in a women's caucus space.
Another CounterPunch article claims that Jensen's current beliefs challenge the "gaslighting" "essentialist position" held by "trans activists on their assertions that In March , Jensen stated that his book, Anarchism and the Politics of Violation , had been pulled before publication because he "dared to critique queer theory ", and that the publisher, Seven Stories Press , had referred to the book as "a misuse of truth".
