Abstract

Indigenous or traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) has come under new attention both through the political sphere, in the form of self-determination and land rights issues and through the scientific, in areas such as pharmacology and environmental management, and both are frequently controversial. This book fulfils a valuable role in this topical and critical debate, provoking questions that force scientists towards their original role of 'natural philosophers', considering the essence of what is 'knowledge', 'truth' and 'value'.
