About this book

A multidisciplinary exploration of the controversial Gaia hypothesis. Forty-four contributions detail the philosophical, empirical and theoretical foundations of Gaia, mechanisms through which planetwide homeostasis could occur, applicability of the hypothesis to planets other than earth, possible destabilization by outside forces, and public policy implications. It formulates Gaia as a scientific hypothesis, and addresses changes in the theory since its conception two decade ago.
