From the Inside Flap

‘A wonderful and beautiful book’ – James Lovelock

’Animate Earth represents systems science at its best. I defy you not to be swept along by Stephan Harding's account of how the Earth's natural systems (particularly the carbon cycle) have evolved and of our part in them. In the process, he brings the concept of Gaia to life, not just in terms of the science, but philosophically and
personally-giving a whole new dimension to what 'environment-friendly' really means.’ Jonathon Porritt, Chairman of the UK Sustainable Development Commission

‘The conception of the Earth as a living, self-organising system, known today as Gaia theory, is an ancient idea and yet one of the most radical and far-reaching scientific theories of the 20th century. In this remarkable book, Stephan Harding, who has worked closely with James Lovelock, tells the story in a way that is scientifically sophisticated, yet easy to understand and captivating. Harding writes about Gaia with great passion, and he eloquently discusses the theory’s philosophical, social and political implications. I recommend Animate Earth to everyone concerned about the fate of our planet.’ Fritjof Capra, author of The Web of Life and The Hidden Connections

’Stephan Harding is one of the few people who knows how to link the science of Gaia with the spirit of Gaia. He shows us that we must understand Gaia not just as an idea in our heads; we must also experience ourselves as part of her living being. . . . A brave book which may upset people from both sides of the divide he seeks to
bridge-which makes it all the more essential reading for those seeking to respond to the challenges of our times.’ Peter Reason, Professor of Action Research Practice, School of Management, University of Bath

’For depth of understanding of Earth functioning and our human role in the process, Stephan Harding's Animate Earth is the finest of recent studies. It should be read, meditated on, and adopted as a guide to our human course of action if we would avoid the disaster of an ecological collapse of life on Earth.’ Thomas Berry, author of The Great Work and The Dream of the Earth --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
