    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    As the basis for human life, nature presents itself as both resource and threat. Mankind’s challenge is to subdue nature, make it useful, and understand it. This has occurred through cultural, scientific, and technical practices as well as through religion, philosophy, and magic. The volume explores these aspects across epochs and large cultural regions.
