Summary "In Science, Soul, and Spirit of Nature, Irene van Lippe-Biesterfeld interviews twelve respected visionary thinkers, representing all continents, about their deep connection with the Earth and their views on the relationship between humanity and the natural world. Presented as a series of thought-provoking conversations, this book delves deeply into the many conceptions we hold about nature, showing that while we have made great strides in the area of its preservation, we must now take the next step toward ensuring its survival. Each contributor adds insights into the urgent change in consciousness that we must adopt in order to heal and restore the holistic relationship between humans and the Earth that was emblematic of the first peoples. Together these voices remind us that separation from and destruction of nature is a destruction of ourselves."--BOOK JACKET
