From the series Against the Grain C.S. Soong interviews Steven Vogel, author of Against Nature: The Concept of Nature in Critical Theory.

But what if Steven Vogel is right, that it makes no sense to speak of being alienated from nature? According to Vogel, another kind of alienation is at play, one that we can and must address.
