Nature provides humans with various 'services', some of which could be called spiritual, e.g. connection to nature, call of the wild, the rich diversity of life, and the awareness that humans are dependent on nature. This leads to a duty of humans towards nature. But what does our spiritual capital need to be like to appreciate this duty? At the individual human level this will include the cultivation of virtue,spiritual practices, and the exercise of care. As a society we need to nurture individual spirituality and recognise that generosity is needed alongside self-interest if the hidden hand is to work. We can educate the virtues, discover a spirit of sacrifice and widen the boundaries of concern.
