Technological Nature: Adaptation and the Future of Human Life
Description:
"Technological Nature is a deeply compelling book. Our species spent 150,000 years as hunter-gatherers of the African savannah, and Kahn clearly demonstrates that ancestral memories of this are with us still, leaving us with an emotional need for nature and the desire to find substitutions for it. His thesis is unique, his work is breathtakingly original, and his presentation has created a real page-turner." --Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, anthropologist, author of The Hidden Life of Dogs and The Old Way: A Story of the First People "Peter Kahn, a pioneering researcher on the human relationship with nature, offers a beautifully written, sometimes disturbing, and always provocative tour of the disappearing borderland between machinery and humanity. Kahn thinks at the cutting edge." --Richard Louv, author of The Nature Principle and Last Child in the Woods "Understanding our interactions with 'technological nature' is one of the most pressing concerns of this century. Peter Kahn's outstanding and insightful book delivers the first comprehensive treatment of this critical topic." --Scott Sampson, Science Advisor and Host, PBS Kids' Dinosaur Train, Research Curator, Utah Museum of Natural History, and author of Dinosaur Odyssey: Fossil Threads in the Web of Life "In this engaging and provocative book, Peter Kahn explores how technology can simulate the natural world. Kahn has written something unusual and important--a fascinating review of ongoing scientific research, a considered exploration of human development, and a passionate defense of the value of nature." --Paul Bloom, Professor of Psychology and Cognitive Science, Yale University, and author, How Pleasure Works "Many today believe human life has become the product of mainly invention and technology. To be modern, they believe, is to separate from the animal world, becoming something different from the rest of living creation. In this world, they wonder, who needs real nature? Yet, as a species, are we necessarily richer for all these gains in terms of health, happiness, and biological fitness? Despite our remarkable capacity to reach far beyond our biology, does our inventiveness continue to rely on having evolved in a natural, not human-created world? This book helps confront this question of the role of modern technology in our lives and where we fit in nature." --Stephen R. Kellert, Tweedy Ordway Professor Emeritus of Social Ecology, Yale University School of Forestry and Environmental Sciences"[Peter Kahn] wants to find out how, as our relationship with the world is increasingly conducted in binary code, we are affected physiologically and psychologically. The answers are completely compelling. Robotic dogs can help children with autism, while telegardening can help rehabilitate those suffering with lost mobility. For office workers without windows, a large-screen TV depicting the outside world can have a positive effect on our mental wellbeing. 'Technological Nature' is a brilliant analysis of the way we live today, caught between the real and the virtual." --Nick Smith, E & T
