Phytochemistry, Gaia, and Herbalism: a four-part lecture series by Richard Mandelbaum
Reductionist mainstream culture tends to separate and segregate what are actually only differing lenses on the same, single reality. Within herbal medicine, for instance, we often separate tradition from science, or spirituality from science, when these are in fact not only compatible but complementary to each other. In this lecture series we will weave together the often disconnected threads of phytochemistry (plant chemistry, pharmacology, and herbal medicine), zoopharmacognosy (how animals in the wild use botanical remedies), and Gaia theory (the scientific theory that all life on Earth acts collectively akin to a single organism).
