The Stuff We Are Made of

Rethinking Nature and Society

The ecological crisis and climate chaos threaten the future of humanity. One of the reasons for this is a technocratic worldview that reduces nature to a disposable resource in the hands of man. In a fascinating journey through the history of science, Fabian Scheidler shows that this conception of nature is a fatal error. With a surprising new look at life, science and ourselves, this book opens up perspectives for profound social change. (In German language.)

“A masterstroke.”—Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker, co-chair of the Club of Rome (2012-2018)
