It is essential reading for anyone interested in how life on earth, and the earth itself, got to this point.

This book is written for all readers interested in the Earth sciences, geology, Goethean Science, and Rudolf Steiner's anthroposophy. It builds and adds to what the author wrote about in his book "The Mutual Evolution of Earth and Humanity: Sketch of a Geology and Paleontology of the Living Earth." The author compares and contrasts there the research results of geology and paleontology with those of Anthroposophical Spiritual Science. The Earth's history is an encompassing process that has sense-perceptible and suprasensible sides. The results of spiritual-scientific research can be tested on nature's phenomena and the Goethean path of knowledge. This way leads through the observations to concepts and ideas which are experienced as true. Thus the geological connections down to the details of rock, a fossil, or a landscape, have proven to me to be an astonishingly faithful image of the suprasensible development of the human being, as Rudolf Steiner describes it. In "Essays from Earth's History," Dankmar Bosse explores how these topics and methods intersect with our modern lives.

We are living in a time "between myth stories" observed such luminaries as Joseph Campbell and Thomas Berry. The classical myths, stories and symbols of our past no longer seem relevant in these difficult times and the new ones that help us to understand ourselves and our place in the world, have yet to be written. Until now....

"We must continue to respond to the desire of Americans to foster and protect the means of survival. The economy is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the environment. That applies equally in all places. We can't afford to pay the rent by selling the store. "The application of simple analytical methods and an interdisciplinary approach can yield the means of identifying for every state and region the range of resource priorities and the most immediate threats to those resources. In the vast reaches of our mountains, forests, plains, deserts, wetlands, lakes, and waterways; in constricted ranges of endangered habitats; and in the tiny crevices in the mud where frogs winter, is the source of our country's future life."—From the Foreword by Gaylord Nelson Former Governor and U.S. Senator from Wisconsin Founder of Earth Day "Once we recognize where all the known resources in a region are, we can see the patterns in which they occur. These patterns can guide how and where future growth can be placed to avoid destroying the essential resources that sustain life."—From the author's Introduction The power and influence of Philip H. Lewis's ideas on landscape planning and design are well known among landscape architects, students, environmentalists, government officials, and the general public. Lewis has spent more than four decades developing and refining his Regional Design Process—a method that guides development toward less fragile lands and preserves cores of natural resources within developed areas. He has proven this system of sustainable design through projects in Wisconsin, the Upper Mississippi Valley, the Great Lakes basin, Alaska, and elsewhere. Those who have attended his lectures and speeches or read his articles are well aware of his enthusiasm, his clarity, and the broad scope of his vision. In Tomorrow by Design, Lewis offers the first comprehensive, unified presentation of his ideas along with proven methods to ensure their successful implementation on a regional, national, or international scale. This book answers the ever-more-compelling question, "How can we manage and develop our land in a way that encourages economic growth without destroying life-giving resources for future generations?" Lewis begins by examining the need for an overview that accounts for all of a region's resources and views those resources in the context of both environmental concerns and human needs. Problems such as pollution, population growth, and decreasing biodiversity are viewed in the context of the ongoing human needs for housing, transportation, energy, food, and economic growth. This holistic approach leads directly to the concept of sustainability—reliance on resources that can be replenished or restored, development of adequate substitutes for nonrenewable resources, and preservation of resources wherever possible without great detriment to humanity or its surroundings. Lewis provides new ways of looking at national patterns of urbanization and communicating national, regional, and local values and visions. He presents numerous case studies and hundreds of illustrations that demonstrate both the process of regional design and specific techniques that can be applied on a range of scales from neighborhood to national. This book is must reading for anyone who is concerned about the interaction of society with the natural world. Landscape architects, environmentalists, and students will gain the skills and training they need to construct a holistic approach to developing, protecting, and enhancing resources. Government officials at all levels will find help in developing policy for land use and resource preservation, and all readers will discover a vision of hope and expanding possibilities that links the vigor and dynamism of humanity with the continued well-being of the natural world.

The theory of biophilia posits that there is an innate connection between all the species that share Earth?s biosphere and that this connection is inherently collaborative as organisms work together to ensure survival as opposed to competing for resources and territory. As threats to the environment increase in frequency and scale, applying a scientifically rigorous lens to the biophilia theory becomes crucial to ensuring survival. Examining Biophilia and Societal Indifference to Environmental Protection is a pivotal reference source that explores the relationship between nature, humanity, and mindfulness. The book is broken into three sections with the first section introducing the reader to biophilia and examining how this phenomenon results in human awe for nature. The second section investigates the value of biophilia and covers human exploitation of nature, including how this has changed the regard for children and elders. The final section outlines a practical approach to restoring nature and renewing faith in one another. While highlighting a broad range of topics including mental health, natural disasters, and taxonomy, this book is ideally designed for biologists, activists, engineers, policymakers, government officials, academicians, researchers, and students.

This book explores the factors and mechanisms that may have influenced the dynamic behaviors of earliest civilizations, focusing on both environmental (geographic) factors on which traditional historic analyses are based and human (behavioral) factors on which anthropological analyses are usually based. It also resurrects a number of common ancestral terms to help readers understand the complicated process of human and cultural evolution around the globe. Specifically, in almost all indigenous languages, the words ‘wa’ and any variants of it were originally associated with the sound of crying of – and certainly were selected as the common ancestral word with the meanings of “house, home, homeland, motherland, and so on” by – early humans living in different parts of the world.This book provides many neglected but still crucial environmental and biological clues about the rise and fall of civilizations – ones that have largely resulted from mankind’s long-lasting “Win-Stay Lose-Shift” games throughout the world. The narratives and findings presented at this book are unexpected but reasonable – and are what every student of anthropology or history needs to know and doesn't get in the usual text. “Professor Guo explores the dynamics of civilizations from the beginnings to our perplexingly complex world. There are lots of thought-provoking ideas here on the rise and decline of civilizations and nations... Anyone wishing to understand global developments should give this book serious consideration.” ----John Komlos, University of Munich, Germany, and Duke University, USA “It is interesting to see a Chinese perspective on the questions of deep history that have engaged Jared Diamond, Yuval Harari and David Christian. Guo argues that understanding cyclical threats has been the key to human progress, which is driven by the dialectic of material privation and human ingenuity.” ----Peter Rutland, Wesleyan University, USA
