“The sea is not made of water. Creatures are its genes”. The returning guest on this episode of Inquiry is writer, natural historian, and classical scholar, ADAM NICOLSON, begins his new book LIFE BETWEEN TIDES, by creating his tide pools on the coast of Scotland. He wants to better study and get to know the small creatures of this zone that is always in flux. But, the closer Nicholson looks, the more this book expands its focus to include ecology, astronomy, geology, philosophy, anthropology, and much more. This is a unique and extraordinary meditation on the shore and its meaning. Don’t miss this show!
