About this book

Argues that Western epistemology has always ignored the way our physical surroundings shape our mental activity, in favour of an abstracted concept of mind. Even postmodern perspectives emphasise social and cultural factors at the expense of physical ones. Preston goes on to assess the implications of a more situated, rooted account of knowledge for our attitudes to conservation and environmental policy.
