New Animism: a recovery of ancient wisdom for global harmony

This book offers new perspectives on the world from an animistic viewpoint.

The author is Japanese, and her academic career included anthropology in graduate school. She explains how animistic thought can contribute to world peace, and how monotheistic thought and life style, which presently prevail as a global standard, are limited in their ability to contribute in this way.

Most of the episodes are from her daily experiences. The unique point is that she highly evaluates the role of microorganisms and life energy. She also proposes the revival of forest culture, a mother of animism, and the deemphasizing of monotheism, a religion of the desert. The book is different from other new-age books in that it presents biological viewpoints.
