How dualism desacralized nature


More information: http://www.jeremylent.com

Jeremy Lent describes how the reductionist Western mindset looks at the world as a resource for exploitation.

Lent traces how Greek dualism set a foundation for the split Christian cosmos, and how Descartes turned Christian thought into modern dualistic thought.

The sense of the sacredness of nature has disappeared from our dualistic worldview.

From a talk at Book Passage, Corte Madera, California, June 17, 2017.
