van Mensvoort, Koert, and Hendrik-Jan Grievink, eds. Next Nature: Nature Changes Along with Us

Pap. Actar. 2011

Book ID: 87451

Explores our changing notion of nature and how nature has become one of the most successful products of our time. Today, the human impact on our planet cannot be underestimated. Climate change, synthetic biology, mass urbanization -- "We were here" echoes all over. Although many people have tried to improve our relationship with nature, only few have asked the elementary question "What is nature?" This book will radically shift your notion of nature. It shows how our image of nature as static, balanced and harmonic is naive and up for reconsideration. Where technology and nature are traditionally seen as opposed, they now appear to merge or even trade places.
