The Wild and The Wicked

Benjamin Hale will speak about and sign his new book, The Wild and the Wicked: On Nature and Human Nature, on Wednesday, April 5th at 7:30pm.

About the Book:
For years, environmentalists have insisted that nature is fundamentally good. In The Wild and the Wicked, Benjamin Hale adopts the opposite position — that much of the time nature can be bad — in order to show that even if nature is cruel, we still need to be environmentally diligent. Deftly weaving anecdote and philosophy, he shows that we don't need to love nature to be green. What really ought to be driving our environmentalism is our humanity, not nature's value.
