the present ecological concern is an issue of pressing worldwide obstacle, with strategies being sought on many fronts. during this booklet, Seyyed Hossein Nasr argues that the devastation of our international has been exacerbated, if no longer truly brought on, via the reductionist view of nature that has been complex through smooth secular technology. what's wanted, he believes, is the restoration of the reality to which the good, enduring religions all attest; particularly that nature is sacred.

Nasr strains the ancient technique during which Western civilization moved clear of the belief of nature as sacred and embraced a global view which sees people as alienated from nature and nature itself as a laptop to be ruled and manipulated through people. His objective is to negate the totalitarian claims of contemporary technology and to re-open how you can the spiritual view of the order of nature, constructed over centuries within the cosmologies and sacred sciences of the good traditions. each one culture, Nasr exhibits, has a wealth of information and adventure in regards to the order of nature. The resuscitation of this information, he argues, could permit religions all around the globe to complement one another and cooperate to heal the injuries inflicted upon the Earth.
