Booknews
Oates (English, Northrop U.) integrates hard scientific truth with our intuitive sense of wholeness, using the concepts of ecology as models and metaphors for an understanding of our place in the universe. He explains complex scientific ideas and helps the reader understand their philosophical significance, integrating the ideas of thinkers as diverse as Gregory Bateson, Gary Snyder, Ludwig von Bertalanffy, and James Lovelock. Cloth edition ($24.95) was scheduled for May release. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
