As my new novel ‘The Fault in Reality’ nears completion, I’m going to be sharing occasional links to recommended reading related to the book. This piece by Ed Yong about his 2022 title An Immense World is the first in that series and it’s very germane to the story. I was delighted to read it as soon as it came out because I’ve been working on the notion of umwelt since 2017 and this is the first highly readable discussion of the subject that I’ve come across. (If there are others, please let me know.)
I won’t define the umwelt here, but will leave it for Ed Yong to explain in this very readable article. If you’re looking for Christmas presents, I certainly recommend his book!
