About this book

This collection of essays and presentations is based on the international conferences on Gaia held annually at Camelford in England. It includes contributions from James Lovelock and other leading scientists and authors who seek to define exactly what is meant by Gaia, and to translate the theory into practical ways of relating to the planet as a whole.

'Few ideas since the Second World War have challenged prevailing orthodoxies as compelling as Jim Lovelock's Gaia hypothesis. More and more people are now out there surfing its ripples in one way or another, and some of the best of them are to be found in this collection.' -- Jonathon Porrit
