Examining Biophilia and Societal Indifference to Environmental Protection
Mary Ann Markey, Lonny Douglas Meinecke
The theory of biophilia posits that there is an innate connection between all the species that share Earth's biosphere and that this connection is inherently collaborative as organisms work together to ensure survival as opposed to competing for resources and territory. As threats to the environment increase in frequency and scale, applying a scientifically rigorous lens to the biophilia theory becomes crucial to ensuring survival. Examining Biophilia and Societal Indifference to Environmental Protection is a pivotal reference source that explores the relationship between nature, humanity, and mindfulness. The book is broken into three sections with the first section introducing the reader to biophilia and examining how this phenomenon results in human awe for nature. The second section investigates the value of biophilia and covers human exploitation of nature, including how this has changed the regard for children and elders. The final section outlines a practical approach to restoring nature and renewing faith in one another. While highlighting a broad range of topics including mental health, natural disasters, and taxonomy, this book is ideally designed for biologists, activists, engineers, policymakers, government officials, academicians, researchers, and students.
