The erosion of the ethnosphere

Standard

“Even as we lament the collapse of biological diversity, we pay too little heed to a parallel process of loss, the demise of cultural diversity, the erosion of what might be termed the ethnosphere, the full complexity and complement of the human potential as brought into being by culture and adaptation since the dawn of consciousness.” ~ Wade Davis
