Resource Description
NATURE, Western Attitudes Since Ancient Times. Coates. Those concerned about environmental issues need to first understand “how we got here” and to do so requires an investigation of several thousand years of history. Nature itself is not an objective reality that is unaffected by time, culture, and place. Beginning with Roman times, ideological and material factors have influenced human perceptions of, attitudes toward, and uses of nature—notably religion and ethics, science, technology, economics, gender, and ethnicity. Nature is seen among its rich panoply of meanings as a physical place, as the collective phenomena of the world, as an essence or principle that informs the workings of the world, as an inspiration and guide for people and a source of authority governing human affairs, and as the conceptual opposite of culture, often eliciting a need for control or “taming.” Essential reading for those who are interested in the role of nature in the development of great ideas. #EE-13460.
