Radical preservation (articulated here) called for the recovery of an older way of grasping the world. We must cultivate, as E.V. Walter stated in his treatise on the experience of landscape, “some old perspectives to grasp things whole and entire. We need to recover a way of thinking that ancient people took for granted. . . We need to experience the world in a radically old way.”
