The fundamental idea is that the environmental degradation that we are increasingly experiencing is best conceived as the consequence of a cultural mismatch: Our cultures seems not to be appropriate to the natural environment in which we move and on which we depend in thoroughgoing ways. In addressing this problem Thomas Heyd weaves together a rich tapestry of perspectives on human interactions with the natural world, ranging from traditional modes of managing human communities that include the natural environment, in Latin America, to the consideration of poetic travelogues, ecological restoration and botanic gardens. The book considers the relation of human beings to nature in terms of ethics, aesthetics and culture. It engages the current literature in each of these areas with the help of inter-disciplinary approach.
