Item description for The Whole Creature: Complexity, Biosemiotics and the Evolution of Culture by Wendy Wheeler...

Drawing on the new field of complex adaptive systems and biosemiotics, this groundbreaking synthesis of evolutionary and cultural theoryargues that---far from being opposed to nature---culture is the way that nature has evolved in human beings.This major contribution to both cultural studies and ecocriticism shows how complexity and biosemiotics forge the link between nature and culture, and provide a new and better understanding of how the whole human creature operates as both a social and biological being.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Whole Creature: Complexity, Biosemiotics and the Evolution of Culture?

Stunning yet gentle gestures towards a very different eco-politics  Aug 27, 2008
Wheeler's book is a quiet triumph. Although there are an increasing number of thinkers doing more than just bridge the divide between science and culture, few perhaps do it this well. And few write so clearly without sacrificing complexity - in this case the complexity of relations that Wheeler refuses to relinquish in favour of either a reductionist science or (even worse in her book) reductionist political cultures, such as those of neoliberal performance management. The most pleasurable surprise for me in this book is the suggestion of a new politics, based on a new sensitivity, across the nature-culture divide, to what the important Danish biologist Jesper Hoffmeyer has called biosemiotic freedom. Truly a series of steps forward for those rethinking the basics of culture, biology and freedom. And a very interesting, practical, way of bringing "theory" of all kinds to bear on urgent eco-political agendas as they play themselves out - not only in the stratosphere, but in everyday life.
