This study examines the work of social theorist and novelist, Daniel Quinn, best-known for his award-winning novel, "Ishmael". It is the first comprehensive study of Quinn's philosophy, much of which directly concerns the crisis of planetary overuse. As an interpretive analysis, this is suitable for all audiences, including those unfamiliar with Quinn's ideas. His fundamental theme is that humanity must return to the wisdom and guiding principles of its ancestors and to today's living legacy of indigenous and traditional peoples. In extrapolating from Quinn, Brown's interpretation suggests that humanity must return to the principles of satiable living, must let go of its fixation on insatiable development, and go beyond the cultural imperative that humanity's purpose is to insatiably develop its potential.
