Zweers Participating with nature

The challenge of Western civilisation is to learn to participate with nature. In this highly conceptual book Zweers structures the discussion of the relationship between humans and nature. Zweers defends a participation model. In that model humans are seen as different from nature, having a proper evolutionary task. This task is not an appropriation of nature. Nature is not a means to human ends. Nature has to be recognized as having intrinsic value.
