4 Modern Theories That Explain Why We Can’t Get Enough Nature
- The Biophilia hypothesis suggests that humans possess an innate tendency to seek connections with nature and other forms of life. Edward O. Wilson introduced and popularized the hypothesis in his book, Biophilia (1984). He defines biophilia as “the urge to affiliate with other forms of life”.
- Living Systems are open self-organizing living things that interact with their environment. These systems are maintained by flows of information, energy and matter. Some scientists have proposed in the last few decades that a general living systems theory is required to explain the nature of life.
- Biomimetics or Biomimicry is the imitation of the models, systems, and elements of nature for the purpose of solving complex human problems.
- Regenerative Design is a process-oriented systems theory based approach to design. The term “regenerative” describes processes that restore, renew or revitalize their own sources of energy and materials, creating sustainable systems that integrate the needs of society with the integrity of nature.
