“Dan Bruiger's Second Nature sends a clarion call to rethink the implications of new super technologies and economies for human selfhood and for nature itself… This book will be of interest to all who seek sane and humane responses to an increasingly artificial earth that threatens to separate humanity from itself.”

Carolyn Merchant, Professor of Environmental History, Philosophy, and Ethics at the University of California, Berkeley, author of The Death of Nature: Women, Ecology, and the Scientific Revolution and of Radical Ecology: The Search for a Livable World


"Second Nature is the story of our society's 'blind faith' in the neoliberal model of unlimited growth and the need to return to a more life-affirming, sustainable relationship with the earth and one another. It should be required reading for all policy makers before they can even stand for office."

Maude Barlow, National Chairperson, The Council of Canadians, and Director, International Forum on Globalization


“The insights... are timely, interestingly articulate and often brilliant. The book is on the cutting edge and the issues [it explores], gender and the reconciliation of technology with nature, will surely become a growing focus...[T]he masculine mind that also disconnects us from nature is bringing us to a nightmarish place.”

Herb Goldberg, Professor Emeritus, California State University, Licensed Clinical Psychologist, author of The Hazards of Being Male
