The Wild and the Human

Answer must be 750 words or more.

What does the film Grizzly Man teach us about the wildness of nature and how human beings ought to relate to it? What, if anything, was the mistake that led to Timothy Treadwell’s death? Did anthropomorphism (i.e., imagining the bears to have human characteristics) contribute to Treadwell’s death? Is nature indifferent to human interests as filmmaker Werner Herzog claims in his narration? Treadwell sees nature wonderful while Herzog sees it as Darwinian and cruel; is one of them correct or is there a third option? In what ways are both Treadwell’s and Herzog’s viewpoints on nature social constructions as Cronon would put it? Cite specific details from the movie to support your claims.
