Review of The End of Nature (1989)
Bill McKibben (writer).
The brilliance of McKibben’s thesis is indicated by its absence from earlier writing on the environment, including Silent Spring (1962) with its global scope and occasional tropes of contagion and purism. Climate change really would prove to be something philosophically new.
