Humanity is failing at solving complex socio-ecological problems like global climate change, biodiversity loss and population growth. The existing 'sustainable development' paradigm and its reliance on trade-offs between the three pillars of environment, economics, and equity is not robust enough to maintain global carrying capacity. In this timely intervention, Thomas argues that the holistic and transdisciplinary thinking of four iconic American naturalists - Henry David Thoreau, Aldo Leopold, Rachel Carson, and Edward O. Wilson - can instead help to solve our biggest twenty-first century challenges by synthesizing values from four eras of cultural and environmental history.

Arousing the mind and the appetite, Nabhan tells of his adventures as he walks through northern and central Italy along a route used by St. Francis of Assisi. From his talks with peasant farmers and others rich experiences, Nabhan offers profound reflections on the spirit with precise observations of nature as well as lively asides on Italian cuisine.

The naturalist tradition in American fiction was a product of the tremendous changes wrought in late nineteenth-century America by the development of science and technology and by the intellectual upheavals associated with the ideas of Darwin, Marx, Nietzsche, and Freud. This book is an account of naturalism, perhaps the strongest and most influential intellectual tradition or, as Harold Kaplan would argue, mythology to affect modern American literature and culture.Kaplan approaches the naturalist writers through a study of Henry Adams. He sees in Adams the paradigmatic intelligence of his time a prophetic mind, though not a seminal one and a man absorbed with the twin notions of power and order. Adams's major work illustrates the joining of a literary imagination and moral temperament with an almost obsessive response to the science, economic life, and politics of his world. Adams's work exemplifies what Kaplan calls the myth of metapolitics a view of human struggle and fate profoundly dominated by naturalist concepts of power.Kaplan then turns to the fascination that power in its various manifestations material, moral, social, political held for writers such as Dreiser, Norris, Crane, and others. Their dramatic plots, characters, and allegorical images are examined in detail. In wider reference, this book should concern those who are interested in problems of modern ethics and politics in the effort to harmonize concepts of value with images of power and natural order.

Not illustrated. 1908 edition. Excerpt: ... be in and for themselves of particular interest to the great majority of biologists. Their only interest to the biologist exists in what they are practically good for; if there is developed any new mode of thinking or of investigation which will help to solve a problem it is of importance to know about it so that use may be made of it. The same consideration applies in regard to the applications of biometrical theory. To the biologist who is not cultivating this particular field of research the results obtained in it will be of interest only in so far as they appear to make significant contributions, expressible in terms intelligible to any non-mathematically trained person, to the solution of significant problems. There can be no doubt that valuable contributions to biology are being made by workers in biometry. Further, it is believed that this fact would be more generally recognized than is now the case, were the methods and results stated in a terminology less strange and repellent to the average biologist than is the mathematical. In accordance with this belief it will be the aim of these notes to set forth as clearly as may be and in a non-technical way the significant advances in biometrical research. Recent contributions to biometric theory will be considered in the present note. Work in the direction of the application of biometric methods to the solution of concrete biological problems will be discussed in subsequent notes. The degree of trustworthiness of any reasoning from statistical constants of whatever sort must ultimately depend upon the values of the "probable errors" of these constants. The probable error is a measure of the limits of accuracy of the constant to which it applies. A number of recent papers deal with...
