Stephan Harding /
Terra Vivente Scienza, Intuizione e Gaia
Terra vivente, the Italian translation of Animate Earth (Green Books 2007), is the first book in a new series published by Aboca and dedicated to the themes of planetary ecology and of the relationship between man and nature.
In this book, Stephan Harding takes us on a fascinating journey into the earth’s bio-geological system of relations.
From the stance of deep ecology, seeking an intimate form of contact with the environment that is at once scientific, intuitive and direct, Harding enables us to discover the most hidden and complex mechanisms governing the Earth’s self-regulating ability.
The major objective of Harding’s research is to show the interconnectedness of life and the need for us to interact with the environment from within, refuting the skeptical approach of those who mistake natural evolution for the inevitable destruction of the world, and thus relinquish all responsibility, condemning future generations to a non-future.
