    Abstract

    In the following account we apply a Marxist 'mode of production' framework that attempts to create a better understanding of the complex relationships between society and nature. Most of the discussion of the dualism of nature/ society has tended to replicate this divide as reflected in the intellectual division between the natural sciences and the social sciences. We hope to cross this analytic divide and provide an analysis that incorporates both natural and social variables.
