Mutual Aid presents that argument as a description of nature's activities and then
applies the same principles to the evolution of societies. Abbey's novels and
essays demonstrate repeatedly that he advocates Kropotkin's anarchist political
views, and occasionally they show that he accepted his biological views as well.
For instance, Abbey comments upon the relationship between science and the
knowable in an essay, ending a passage about the behavior of buzzards with a
droll ...

E F AC E . his book grew as a scion from Kindred Nature (University of Chicago
Press, 1998), a cultural study of Victorian and Edwardian women and nature. In
the parent book I tried as much as possible to tell my story through the words of
the earlier women, quoting liberally and, when I could, remaining in their grip.
Readers of Kindred Nature have, however, requested longer selections from the
women who were my primary sources, and I have added still other authors who

Organised bodies, born of the air, by virtue of their origin and kindred nature, take
part in the motions which the influence of the sun, chiefly, communicates to the
atmosphere; with every breath of air, with every inhalation of the leaf of a plant,
the motion without penetrates into the interior of the living body. The power by
which the living body is developed is indeed kindred to the light, but yet it is a
much higher power, for no sunbeam is able to form out of water, air and earth, the
organic ...

The fame of Scott will ever rest upon his noble and happy impersonations of
human life, and of the realities of history and tradition, in which, if we except some
of the highest and most impassioned, he is equal to Shak- speare ; and, in variety
, exceeds him : and if he fall far behind in the graceful ornaments of mellifluous
diction and poetic imagery, it must be allowed that he yet challenges a high
character for these attributes, and that too of a strictly kindred nature. If I were
asked where ...

A Family Portrait Monica E. Smith. “We cannot remember too often that when we
observe nature, and especially the ordering of nature, it is always ourselves
alone we are observing”. This was a belief of the German physicist/ philosopher,
G.C. Lichtenberg. One gets the feeling from this that we are looking into a mirror.
And, perhaps we are. Man's connection with nature is truly a strong one—of this
there is no doubt!

from nature and reason, which seems to me so convincing, and is at the same
time so fitted to explain what I mean by man's possession of a like nature to God,
that I shall pass at once to its exposition. That man has a kindred nature with God,
and may bear most important and ennobling relations to him, seems to me to be
established by a striking proof. This proof you will understand, by considering, for
a moment, how we obtain our ideas of God. Whence come the conceptions which
