591: James Lovelock: Novacene

James Lovelock, the creator of the Gaia hypothesis and the greatest environmental thinker of our time, has produced an astounding new theory about the future of life on Earth. He argues that the Anthropocene – the age in which humans acquired planetary-scale technologies – is, after 300 years, coming to an end.

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honours the servant and has forgotten the gift.”

“Novacene: The Coming Age of Hyperintelligence” is written by James Lovelock and co-authored by Bryan Appleyard. First published by Allen Lane in 2019. This edition is published by Penguin Books in 2020. Donated to the library by Daiga Cepīte-Frišfelde from Latvia ❤️
