People of the Land: A Pacific Philosophy

Author(s): Patterson, John

NZ Society

This sequel to the author's acclaimed first book on Maori philosophy, "Exploring Maori Values", develops the idea that we humans can and need to become "people of the land" in the Maori sense (tangata whenua), developing a harmonious interdependence with the environment in which we live rather than continuing to dominate it. Although arising out of Maori concepts, this is a model for human life which is available to any culture and is urgently needed to replace discredited ideas of human sovereignty over the natural environment.
