Wines of alternative practices

Philosophy and physical sciences constantly forced man to re-examine his relationship with the natural world. As a result, man became increasingly detached from nature and viewed nature as a dispensable object for scientific probing. While great progress was made in science—in light of this view point—great damage was done to the earth. The planet’s natural resources had diminished, while the population and external pollutants had steadily increased. Eventually people noticed this damage and realized there is a direct correlation between technological advances and the finite character of nature. Since then, the issue of environmental respect has become imperative. The survival of human civilization is dependent upon a conscious relationship between man and nature.
