Palmer, herself an important and prolific author on environmental matters, has assembled a team of thirty-five expert contributors to summarize and analyse the thinking of fifty diverse and stimulating figures – from all over the world and from ancient times to the present day. Among those included are:

  • Philosophers such as Rousseau, Spinoza and Heidegger
  • Activists such as Chico Mendes
  • Literary giants such as Virgil, Goethe and Wordsworth
  • Major religious and spiritual figures such as the Buddha and St Francis of Assisi.

Lucid, scholarly and informative, these fifty essays offer a fascinating overview of mankind’s view and understanding of the physical world.
