I have been reading about biophilia in a book called Happy Cities.   It’s the idea, first proposed by Edward O. Wilson (actually, there must be seventeenth-century, if not Greek, antecedents) that humans are hardwired to find nature restorative and, as documented by environmental psychologists, that cities should have ample access to trees.   I thought of this as I walked past Mile End park and thought how surprising it is to find such a scene in Bethnal Green:-


One thought on “Biophilia

  1. I had no idea that Mile End Park had such delights.

    But I imagine, London is full of such pastoral corners. Perhaps, once your Blog is properly launched in book form, there’s another book waiting to be assembled there ?
