Submitted by francisk on Wed, 01/10/2007 - 10:08pm.


 Donald Worster, Nature's Economy, pp. ix-xiii, 1-111.

* Lynn White, “Historical Roots of Ecological Crisis.”

* Wendell Berry, “Christianity and the Survival of Creation.”

* Genesis 1-3

* Selections from William Paley, "Natural Theology" (1802)


Carolus Linnaeus, "On the Police of Nature."


Google Books recently added a collection of Linnaeus' works on natural history. (From the title page, each of these works appears to have been a dissertation written by one of Linnaeus' students. However, sholars credit Linnaeus with the ideas and writing contained in these dissertations.) "On the Police of Nature" appears on pages 129-165 of this collection.
