Nature in Our Culture shows that today's environmental problems are not a consequence of an incorrect science, but of the evolution of Western society. Friedrich W. Sixel acknowledges that the dominant culture that has evolved in modernity serves, primarily, the dominance of that culture. An egoistic instrumentalism forces the modern individual to view everything in terms of its usefulness. Sixel argues that only a culture that resurrects in itself its own Nature-ness will rectify our presently problematic Nature.
