Naturalist Book Club
Join us as we discuss Stephen Kellart’s captivating book- Birthright: People and Nature in the Modern World.
An eloquent explanation of why human beings need to connect with nature and what is lost when they are disconnected from the natural world
Human health and well-being are inextricably linked to nature; our connection to the natural world is part of our biological inheritance. In this engaging book, a pioneer in the field of biophilia—the study of human beings’ inherent affinity for nature—sets forth the first full account of nature’s powerful influence on the quality of our lives. Stephen Kellert asserts that our capacities to think, feel, communicate, create, and find meaning in life all depend upon our relationship to nature. And yet our increasing disconnection and alienation from the natural world reflect how seriously we have undervalued its important role in our lives…Kellert’s moving book provides exactly what is needed now: a fresh understanding of how much our essential humanity relies on being a part of the natural world.
Join us for a lively discussion of this fascinating book.
