The author argues that two large modifications of human adaptive strategy have taken place in the course of our species’ history: 1. self-preserving modification at the beginning of the emergence of anatomically modern humans; 2. spiritual abandonment of live nature which occurred two thousand years before the end of Neolithic culture. The third modification, namely the turn from the predatory spiritual paradigm to the biophile paradigm, must be performed now. The author describes the latter in detail with regard to the natural sciences and the education system.
