“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

A Foray into the Worlds of Animals and Humans

Cary Wolfe's edition of Uexküll is, as Levi pointed out the other day, really beautiful. Color illustrations and all that jazz. I'm excited to read it again. Nice looking introduction. Great cover. Somehow those Minnesota covers are integrated yet unique. If you don't know already Levi has a post on it, and I write about the misuses of Umwelten here.
