Culture and the Changing Environment: Uncertainty, Cognition and Risk Management in Cross-cultural Perspective
Michael J. Casimir, Department of Social Anthropology Michael J Casimir
Berghahn Books, 2008 - Всего страниц: 394
Today human ecology has split into many different sub-disciplines such as historical ecology, political ecology or the New Ecological Anthropology. The latter in particular has criticised the predominance of the Western view on different ecosystems, arguing that culture-specific world views and human-environment interactions have been largely neglected. However, these different perspectives only tackle specific facets of a local and global hyper-complex reality. In bringing together a variety of views and theoretical approaches, these especially commissioned essays prove that an interdisciplinary collaboration and understanding of the extreme complexity of the human-environment interface(s) is possible.
