Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With Nature provides new ways to think about our relationship with nature in todayand#8217;s technologically mediated culture. Warwick Mules makes original connections with German critical philosophy and French poststructuralism in order to examine the effects of technology on our interactions with the natural world.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 461-476) and index.
