NEW DISCOVERIES OF INTERRELATEDNESS
THAT ARE TRANSFORMING THE MODERN WORLD
By Charlene Spretnak
Published by Green Horizon Books, $14
Charlene Spretnak’s new book opens with this sentence: "Our hypermodern societies currently possess only a kindergarten-level understanding of the deeply relational nature of reality.”
In her previous book The Resurgence of the Real, cultural historian and ecofeminist Charlene Spretnak shows how the modern outlook handed down from the Enlightenment is now losing ground to an emergent worldview, one rooted in what she calls “the real” — the realities of nature, our bodies, and our physical surroundings.
