Rules of Life: James Lovelock version

So there are many very naive ways of looking at the Gaia hypothesis–and those have engendered a lot of “antibody-response” over the years from the scientific community. Here, Bruno Latour, the French philosopher lays out Lovelock’s scientific perspective on the biosphere in lay language. I think it’s really quite a good essay–and it would be the proper way to talk about it with a lay stakeholder such as a member of Congress. It reminds me of Harold Morowitz’s views on the subject.
