Williams, Michael. “The Origin and Construction of Knowledge.” Environment and History 10, no. 2, “The Nature of G. P. Marsh: Tradition and Historical Judgement” special issue (May 2004): 127–131. In essence the core of these five papers is the question of the origins and ‘construction’ of knowledge. Each paper seeks to question the ‘originality’ of George Perkins Marsh in his Man and Nature, and more specifically David Lowenthal’s assessment of Marsh’s ideas on the environment in his magnificent biography of Marsh.
