The Good in Nature and Humanity by Stephen R Kellert and Timothy J Farnham pdf free download. This book, and the conference that inspired it—“The Good in Nature and Humanity,” held at Yale University in May 2000—originated in the conviction that the root causes of modern society’s environmental and spiritual crises cannot be understood nor effectively resolved until the split between religion and
science, or, more generally, between faith and reason, has been effectively reconciled.

By comprehending and strengthening the bonds between spirituality, science, and nature, we may come closer to achieving an environmental ethic that better equips us to confront two of the most imperiling crises of our time—global environmental destruction and an impoverished spirituality. By bridging the gap between rationality and religion through the concern of each for understanding the human relation to creation, we may better pursue the quest for a more secure and meaningful world. Scientists traditionally examine the natural environment in seeking knowledge that enhances our physical and mental security.

The religious or spiritual practitioner analogously pursues an understanding of creation that points the way toward meaning and salvation. For both scientists and the spiritually and religiously inclined, the recognition grows that in our abuse of the earth we
diminish our moral as well as our material condition. This mutual realization forges an understanding of the link between an environmentally degraded planet and a spiritually depauperate humanity. Conservationists, ever more cognizant of this connection, have increasingly acknowledged that both scientific and spiritual understandings are necessary in achieving an ethical sensibility
capable of confronting the global crisis of pervasive environmental pollution, resource depletion, atmospheric degradation, and enormous biodiversity loss.
