Ecological Intelligence: Rediscovering Ourselves in Nature

Ecological Intelligence: Rediscovering Ourselves in Nature Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Defines a new way of thinking about the unprecedented environmental pressures of our day. McCallum offers a compelling argument that we must think differently about ourselves and the earth if we are to take seriously the survival of wilderness areas.

Book News Annotation:

Medical doctor, psychiatrist, and director of the Wilderness Foundation Africa, McCallum also writes novels and poetry. Here he describes the privilege of being a human animal as a wild and ethical imperative and an urgent reminder that people are inextricably linked to the land. Beginning with memories of human origins and proceeding to prospects for the human future, he discusses such topics as reshaping myth and language, evolution in perspective, facing our shadow, the blind spots, reconciliation, and the keeping of the zoo. This is a revision of the 2005 edition published by Africa Geographic, Cape Town. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
