The author offers a cultural critique of the Western view of nature, drawing on works by Plato, Lao-Tzu, and Spinoza, and Whitehead, in order to construct a set of concrete measures to estimate the value of nature. The result is an environmental cosmology called Foundational Ecology, which seeks to repair the mental division Westerners have created between urban and natural worlds, and which would be used as an educational tool for dealing with current environmental crises.
