The author argues that one reason for our failure to save the earth is our disagreement about what `nature' really is - how it works, what constitutes a risk to it, and whether we ourselves are a part of it. Evernden traces the evolution of the concept of `nature' over the past 5 centuries.
Sociobiologists talk about human life as if it were no more than an element of Nature, bound by its iron laws. Neil Evernden makes an end run around them by showing that once upon a time 'Nature' did not exist. Rather, he says, it is a human invention and it has a history.--'Environmental History Review'
