This review is from: The Biophilia Hypothesis (Hardcover)A short comment on 'The Biophilia Hypothesis'...
Following up from E. O. Wilson's stunningly moving 'Biophilia: the Human Bond With Other Species', this volume takes the reader on a scintillating journey through how we feel about our world. The concept of 'biophilia' - that humans have evolved to affiliate with aspects of our natural environment - is brilliantly developed by a number of authors in their respective essays. The reader 's emotions resonate with the writing, and the reader's brain hums with ideas as the authors continually provoke one to think deeper.
This is a serious volume, and an important one. We would do well do study it, follow it up, and as a result, improve the way we live in our unique world.
