Review ß Living Through the End of Nature Æ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Summary Living Through the End of Nature How environmentalism can reinvent itself in a postnature age a proposal for navigating between naive naturalism and technological arroganceEnvironmentalists have always worked to protect the wildness of nature but now must find a new direction We have so tamed colonized and contaminated the natural world that safeguarding it from humans is no longer an option Humanity's imprint is now everywhere and all efforts to preserv. In Living Through the End of Nature Paul Wapner informs us of the progression of American environmentalism The novel takes the reader through the history of interaction between man and nature and addresses his theory of a post nature age Wapner points out what modern environmentalists have to do in order to live in peace with nature without completely stopping human technological advances Within the novel Wapner makes sure to structure the book to emphasize the most important points with future environmentalism He makes sure to include different opinions about the subject from many naturalists with varying views Although I found the structure and writing of the book intriguing as I continued reading the sections seemed to drag on with the same repeated topics The initial debate on whether humans and nature could coexist in harmony was fascinating but the tangled concepts about the one subject made the book difficult to understand at times Overall I give this book a 45 on GoodReads I loved reading a book where the author explains both sides of the spectrum when discussing modern environmentalism and still had the courage to address the intimidating future I would recommend this to book to an older audience because of the complexity of the writing but if you truly enjoy debates on this topic like myself this would be the perfect book

Wapner makes a good helpful argument Stop trying to keep nature and humanity in separate but competing compartments because we already co exist in every compartment Instead figure out how to co exist in a mutually beneficial way The argument could be made briefly and simply but Wapner must deal with the complexities of passionate positions among environmentalists past and present He must show that he understands their arguments so he briefly recaps the discourses of nature protectionists He even shows real understanding for advocates of technological mastery over nature The aim is to harmonize all insights into a greater subtle less ideological uest for a better shared future
