Example text

A good way of reformulating the question of the relevant differences between the natural and the man-made is to ask ourselves what it would take to simulate a natural environment, one that would in fact be accepted as a satisfactory surrogate by uso Some aficionados of nature would probably shrink in horror at the very suggestion that anyone might try to undertake such a simulation, or would dismiss it out of hand as a pointless undertaking, foredoomed to failure. " Krieger was actuaHy less concerned with the feasibility or desirability of simulating nature or substituting artificial equivalents for it as with the broader question of the economic and social value to be placed on nature and on tracts of nature to be preserved in an untrammeled, undeveloped condition.
