About this book

"Biophilia" is the term coined by Edward O. Wilson to describe what he believes is our innate affinity for the natural world. In his book of that title, he examined how our tendency to focus on life and lifelike processes might be a biologically based need, integral to our development as individuals and as a species. That idea has caught the imagination of diverse thinkers, and this book brings together the views of some of their writings on the subject. Contributors include Jared Diamond, Gordon H.Orians, Richard Nelson, Paul Shepard, Dorion Sagan, Lynn Margulis, Michael E Soule and David Orr.
