In the 1970s, environmentalist John Livingston began to find serious flaws in the conventional conservation argument. He began to challenge the belief that the survival of undomesticated plants and animals in a world dominated by humans could be enabled through "resource conservation" managed by humans. He argues that our dependence on ideas -- in effect, our own domestication -- has cut us off from the natural world, and led us to believe that our domination over nature is itself "natural." Winner of the 1994 Governor General's Award for Non-fiction.
