This article discusses the 'nature' of our contemporary fascinatiion with wildness, in light of the popular documentary "Grizzly Man." Taking as its central point of departure the film's central protagonist Timothy Treadwell's fascination with wild grizzlies and director Werner Herzog's condemnation of it as gross anthropomorphism, this paper will explore the context and basis of our contemporary fascination with wildness in terms of the current debate reaging within environmental philosophy between teh social constructivist or post-modern position as exemplified by Martin Drenthen and the feral humanist position as articulated by Paul Shepard. The former argues that this fascination with wildness is reflective of certain historical and cultural trends within contemporary western society, while the latter argues that it is reflective of our primordial human heritage.
