The Nature of Green Building attempts to evaluate some of the fundamental ideas behind 'eco' houses. It looks at the origins of much of the received wisdom and considers which derive from scientific... More > analysis and which from cultural ideals, which are well-founded and which less so. And whilst there is some criticism of the Green Movement's general ignorance of its own cultural history it is, on the whole, sympathetic and seeks to rescue some valuable historical precedents from oblivion, particularly concerning buildings, that they may be useful again today. Ultimately The Nature of Green Building seeks to redefine our understanding of what the Green Movement actually is, as opposed to what it is generally assumed to be. In this way, it is hoped that the Green Movement may rediscover the whole spectrum of influence it once proudly wielded, rather than remaining confined in the narrow fields of science and economics.< Less

OUR age is retrospective. It builds the sepulchres of the fathers. It writes biographies, histories, and criticism. The foregoing generations beheld God and nature face to face; we, through their... More > eyes. Why should not we also enjoy an original relation to the universe? Why should not we have a poetry and philosophy of insight and not of tradition, and a religion by revelation to us, and not the history of theirs? Put the living generation into masquerade out of its faded wardrobe? The sun shines to-day also. There is more wool and flax in the fields. There are new lands, new men, new thoughts. Let us demand our own works and laws and worship. Every man's condition is a solution in hieroglyphic to those inquiries he would put. He acts it as life, before he apprehends it as truth. In like manner, nature is already, in its forms and tendencies, describing its own design. Let us interrogate the great apparition, that shines so peacefully around us. Let us inquire, to what end is nature?< Less

UNCONSCIOUSLY we are forming habits every moment of our lives. Some are habits of a desirable nature; some are those of a most undesirable nature. Have we it within our power to determine at all... More > times what types of habits shall take form in our lives? In other words, is habit-forming, character building, a matter of mere chance, or have we it within our own control?
