The Last Human Spring provides a philosophy of the nature-human world and its interactions, from concepts of evolution and astronomical history to reflections on concepts of aliens, human alliances with and struggles over nature, and visions of how humanity interacts with the environment.

I continue to be amazed at the clarity with which L.S. Heatherly presents what was, for me, incomprehensible human relationships and foibles. I've come to rely upon "The Last Human Spring" as my guide to life. The book exudes enlightenment. The prose is eminently readable and, in the best philosophical manner, the reader is guided along the path while being encouraged to think independently.

To quote (with his permission) Darryl House: "THE LAST HUMAN SPRING is an absorbing, enlightening, and fascinating work. The ideas are as important as any I've ever read or studied. This is an amazing philosopher. I dare say that his work may become as important as any by Darwin or B. F. Skinner. This book has had a profound influence on my interpretation of the human condition; and I am committed to getting it into the minds and hands of the world. Bless Heatherly's soul for forming these ideas and publishing them." -- Darrly House, Magalia California, USA
