The perfumier and the stinkhorn : reflections on natural science and Romanticism

Mabey, Richard, 1941-2011
Books
In these elegant, short essays, revered nature writer Richard Mabey, attempts to marry a romantic's view of the natural world with that of the meticulous observations of the scientist. By Romanticism he refers to the view that nature isn't a machine to be dissected, but a community of which we, the observers, are inextricably part.
