Ecological Intelligence: Rediscovering Ourselves in Nature
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
A best seller in Africa, Ecological Intelligence defines a new way of thinking about the unprecedented environmental pressures of our day. McCallum offers a compelling argument that we must think differently about ourselves and the earth if we are to take seriously the survival of wilderness areas, wild animals, and the human race. Ecological Intelligence explores the relationship between humans and nature from both a biological and poetic perspective, arguing that understanding and reinforcing the evolutionary bonds that connect all life will lead to a greater sense of our place in the world. The notion of ecological intelligence is a wild and ethical imperative an urgent reminder that we are inextricably linked to the land, that the history of every living creature is within us, that we are, above all, a mindful species that must not be the creatures of our own undoing.
