Description - The Social Construction of Nature by Klaus Eder

This interpretation of nature and environmentalism: examines the destructive relationship between industrial society and nature; questions the utilitarian understanding of nature as an object through a careful analysis of symbolism, ritual and taboo; critically re-examines thinking on the environment; presents a cultural view of nature, which emphasizes how our relation with nature is socially mediated; offers a radical re-interpretation of the relation between society, culture and nature; and explains how environmentalism, and the social construction of nature, is a key index of social order and structure.
