“The book is the result of a symposium held in Kyoto and Atami during March 1992. Consequently several of the authors summarize mostly their own work [...]. Since a large portion of these publications by the Japanese authors were originally in Japanese, the book also makes the current research in the field of ethnobiology in Japan available to European and American readers. [...]
The book is a very interesting and multi-facet contribution to ethnobiology, and cultural anthropology/ethnology and is of interest to all scholars concerned with the nature/culture debate, with cognitive anthropology, and with biological (including ecological) approaches in the field.” ―Anthropos
“Redefining Nature therefore provides a thorough examination of issues that are central to environmental anthroplogy and makes a substantial contribution to the debates on them. . .Nature is a thoughtful, in-depth attempt to reconcile cultural and cognitive issues and their agency in the co-evolution of humans and other species. Its detailed and wide-ranging case-studies underscore the complexities of this interaction and provide the reader with some genuine insights into the dynamics of the relationship between humans and the environment.” ―Journal of the Anthropological Society of Oxford (JASO)
