really liked it
Read in August, 2011

This is an important book that details the shift from an organic worldview to a mechanistic one, which is one based on oppression towards women and nature. Mercant's writing does leave something to be desired, but the content of her ideas is what is most important. The history of science and worldview that she traces here is essential in understanding our current ecological condition.
