After the Death of Nature: Carolyn Merchant and the Future of Human-Nature Relations

Cover for After the Death of Nature: Carolyn Merchant and the Future of Human-Nature Relations Edited by Elizabeth Allison ’91, et al. Routledge, October 2018. This book examines and builds upon Carolyn Merchant’s decades-long legacy of innovative environmental thought and her critical responses to modern mechanistic and patriarchal conceptions of nature and women as well as her systematic taxonomies of environmental thought and action. Seventeen scholars and activists assess, praise, criticize, and extend Merchant’s work to arrive at a better and more complete understanding of the human place in nature today and the potential for healthier and more just relations with nature and among people in the future.
