The Relationship of Intelligence and Matter
By Bill Huth

     “Man vs. Nature” – this is the most-used phrase when talking in passing about the relationship between Man and Nature. The early religious belief that man is dominant over nature has helped feed this phrase to generations, causing humans, as a whole, to forget about their roots in the Natural world and the never-ending cycle of help and support they have received (and still do receive) from the very plants and animals they claim to have dominance over.

    Bill Huth, a professional environmentalist, philosopher, and believer in the importance of nature to man’s continued existence, has poured all of these thoughts along with many more into “The Relationship of Intelligence to Matter.” From the importance of environmental preservation to the importance nature has to Man, Huth covers every area he can in this eighty-seven page essay. Using his knowledge of philosophy, theology, and world culture, Huth delves deeper than any man before him into the center of nature and the human species.

      I love what Huth has done with this subject. It is extremely complex in its wording, but easy to understand if you have some passing knowledge of any philosophy and religion. I recommend this book for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationships with the ever-decreasing habitat they live in.
