If your quest for a well examined look at your own egoistic assumptions that man and his scientific ways will improve or even save the natural world, read this book. David Ehrenfeld,in his preface,dated April 1978,"...when I saw how our unquestioning humanistic faith in our own omnipotence provides a common explanation for so many seemingly different things that are happening to us;when I perceived the tremendous implications of the wide and widening discrepancy between world-pervasive faith in reason and human power and the living reality of the human condition; then I wrote this book.".
