Book Review: The Design Way We live in a world, which, on the one hand, has been shaped by natural forces and according to natural laws but which, on the other hand, has been shaped through human activity to such a degree that, as the authors of The Design Way write, "scientists have begun to label the present epoch as the Anthropocene era." They explain that "as human beings, we continuously create things that help reshape the reality and essence of the world as we know it. When we create new things ... we engage in design." The authors, however, bemoan the fact that "design has remained surprisingly invisible and unrecognized in the world at large."
