The fifth volume on Man in Nature is a
coming together of cultures and disciplines. Enchanting in their own
way, the international community of scientists, philosophers,
anthropologists, ecologists and artists, share in this volume the myths
and cosmology of their respective societies and cultures. There emerges
a most meaningful dialogue between those who live with the myths of
primordial elements and those who have modified the tools of science to
investigate the nature of matter.
