Transcript of Separating Nature and Humanity

Wendall Berry, Preserving Wildness
“To be divided against nature, against wildness, then, is a human disaster because it is to be divided against ourselves. It confines our identity as creatures entirely within the bounds of our understanding, which is invariably a mistake because it is invariably reductive. It reduces our largeness, our mystery, to a petty and sickly comprehensibility. “ (520).

Health and Well-being
