Santiago Beruete in conversation with Fernanda Febres-Cordero

Commemorating 50 years of Turner

Segovia 2021, 

For Santiago Beruete, looking at a garden is looking at life and learning to read it differently. He also considers that goodness is an attribute of the intelligence. Starting from these bases, this anthropologist and Doctor of Philosophy, who combines his educational and research activity with gardening and writing, will teach us to reflect on the importance of our relationship with nature. He has published the essays Aprendívoros, Jardinosofía and Verdolatría. The subtitles of these books, respectively “Cultivating Curiosity”, “A Philosophical History of Gardens” and “Nature Teaches Us To Be Human” give us an idea of his goal, which is none other than to talk about the Earth on terms of equality, and not from an anthropocentric viewpoint.

He will talk to Fernanda Febres-Cordero, Publishing Coordinator at Turner.
