Abstract

The greatest sense of estrangement we face today as humans is our increasing lack of connectedness with Nature as a whole. Though the resources and processes in Nature provide for our benefi t and well- being, we are being increasingly alienated from them. Despite this, we contend that we can control and dominate these processes and resources, and if need be, can replace them with products of human ingenuity and technology. This mentality is in large part the result of our minds being commandeered by the dominant neoliberal ideology of our times.
