Sustainability and the American Naturalist Tradition : Revisiting Henry David Thoreau, Aldo Leopold, Rachel Carson, and Edward O. Wilson Paperback / softback

Part of the New Ecology series

Description

Humanity is failing at solving complex socioecological problems like global climate change, biodiversity loss, and population growth.

The existing sustainable development paradigm and its reliance on tradeoffs between the three pillars of environment, economics, and equity is not robust enough to maintain global carrying capacity.

In this timely intervention, Craig 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.
