A fascinating post by Miles Richardson on a profound cultural shift. Interesting methodology, especially how the authors deal with the possibility that the effect they describe is simply due to new words being used rather than a disconnect from nature.

I want to read the original in more depth and I would wonder about the influence of overall shifts in literary style – a sparer, less lyrical approach to prose – which of course itself.is a cultural shift.
