On the Necessity of Gardening tells the story of the garden as a rich source of inspiration. Over the centuries, artists, writers, poets and thinkers have described, depicted and conceived of the garden in many different ways. In medieval art, the garden was a reflection of paradise, a place of harmony and fertility, safe from the problems of the world. In the 18th century, this image changed: the garden became a symbol of the powers and politics of the world. The Anthropocene forces us to radically rethink the role we have attributed to nature over the past decades. Through essays and an extensive anthology, this book offers a reflection on the garden as a metaphor for society.
