James Lovelock

Oxford Landmark Science

  • Outlines Jim Lovelock's original theory that life on Earth functions as a single organism, a hypothesis which has generated great debate in scientific circles
  • Explains how the Earth's living matter, air, ocean, and land together form a complex system that has the capacity to keep the Earth a fit place for life
  • Includes a new Preface from the author outlining the state of the debates around the Gaia hypothesis today
  • Part of the Oxford Landmark Science range: 'must-read' modern science books which have crystallized big ideas, and shaped the way we think.
