About this book

Examines the history of the concept of nature in the tradition of Critical Theory with chapters on Lukàcs, Horkheimer and Adorno, Marcuse, and Habermas. It argues that the tradition has been marked by significant difficulties with respect to that concept; that these problems are relevant to contemporary environmental philosophy as well; and that a solution to them requires taking seriously - and literally - the idea of nature as socially constructed.
