An increasing number of enthusiasts are attracted by the rich variety of rocks and minerals around us, and new ways of looking at them. In this book, Walther Cloos views the Earth as a living organism, with different kingdoms of nature—mineral, plant and animal—as stages left behind as Earth developed. He argues that everything currently inert and static was once dynamic and alive. The author considers numerous aspects of geology, with chapters on oil, sedimentary rocks, radioactivity, volcanoes, and metals.

Written more than fifty years ago, this book is a classic, pioneering a scientific, geological understanding of Rudolf Steiner's spiritual insights into the evolution of Earth .

A previous edition of this book was published as The Living Earth.
