The way in which people value nature differs between cultures. Islam, for example, points out the many signs that Allah has put in nature that will give guide believers through their lives. Buddhism approaches nature from a viewpoint of respect for all living beings. In the West, on the other hand, we have started seeing nature in terms of its utility and usefulness.
Through Spiegel van de Natuur Matthijs Schouten aims to instill in his readers a sense of awe about the incredible diversity in which nature is viewed, as witnessed throughout the history of man. He applies religious thought, philosophy, art, and literature from different cultures as approach. Spiegel van de Natuur is aimed at a broad audience of people interested in both nature and culture. Spiegel van de Natuur will move readers to think about their own vision on nature, and, with that, reflection on nature's future.
