Huntington and Lovelock : climatic determinism in the 20th century

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Early in the 20th century, E. Huntington wrote of the impact of climate on civilization and of climate change on history and society. J. Lovelock, writing late in the century, claimed that the Earth is a living organism capable of self-regulation. He called this the Gaia hypothesis. Collectively, Huntington's and Lovelock's ideas demonstrate a range of deterministic theories in explaining the consequences of climatic processes and are relevant to current global change studies
