For a thousand generations, human beings viewed themselves as part of the wider community of nature, and they carried on active relationships not only with other people but with other animals, plants, and natural objects (including mountains, rivers, winds, and weather patterns. How, then, did humans come to sever their ancient reciprocity with the natural world? Abram's work reveals the subtle dependence of human cognition on the natural environment and explores the character of perception and excavates the sensual foundations of language, which echoes the calls and cries of the earth.
