Human Conflict with Nature: Alarm Bell for the Demise of Our Modern Civilisation
Masood H. Kizilbash
In attempting to capture the significant rules of nature as applicable to humans, the author surmises that those civilisations that exceeded the limits of nature faced cataclysmic destinies. Examining the histories and geological and archaeological evidences of several early civilisations, he seeks to explain the conflict between humans and nature in the light of science, philosophy and human psychology.
