Biophillia Hypothesis by Edward O. Wilson

The idea that humans evolved as creatures deeply enmeshed with the intricacies of nature, and that we still have this affinity with nature ingrained in our genotype.
The term "biophilia", referring to humans' "love of living things" - our innate affinity with nature.
Biophilia is described as the "innate tendency to focus on life and lifelike processes."
