schema:description"For more than two centuries, as Western cultures became industrialized, they increasingly regarded the natural world as little more than a collection of useful raw resources. The folklore of forest spirits was displaced by the practicalities of logging; the traditional rituals of hunting ceremonies gave way to indiscriminate butchering of animals for meat markets. In the famous lament of Max Weber, our surroundings became "disenchanted," with nature's magic swept away by secularization and rationalization. But as sociologist James William Gibson reveals in this study, the culture of enchantment is making a comeback. From Greenpeace eco-warriors to evangelical Christians preaching "creation care" to geneticists who speak of human-animal kinship, Gibson finds a remarkably broad yearning for a spiritual reconnection to nature. As we grapple with increasingly dire environmental disasters, Gibson points to this cultural shift as the last utopian dream, the final hope for protecting the world that all of us must live in.--From publisher description."@en
