Animate Earth: Science, Intuition and Gaia

Really nice documentary film written and presented by ecologist Dr Stephan Harding about how many of the problems we currently face have been caused by a science that is out of balance and favours the quantitive over the qualitative to the detriment of us all. Harding, a colleague of philosopher James Lovelock argues that intuition is equally as important as reason and that without intuition, reason often fails to see things holistically.

By contrast, it is often only through using intuition that objects of study are seen within the context of their relationship to the whole.

The documentary also contains interviews with Brian Goodwin, Iain McGilchrist, Fritjof Capra, Vandana Shiva, Jules Cashford and Satish Kumar.
