Mountain myths revisited : integrating natural and social environmental science

published at : Special issue on integrating natural and social environmental science

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Paper is an introduction to the special edition, but it is far more than a review of the following articles. Author argues for social constructions of the environment that will avoid myths (e.g., Himalayan environmental degradation) and will facilate a critical debate over the meaning of biophysical processes. He supports the adoption of cultural theory, new ecology, and critical realism in environmental research which should incorporate environmental perception, long-term environmental histories, and the environmental knowledge of different parties. - (SLD)
