What is environmental determinism?

Knowledge about Nature is extremely important to develop technology and technology loosens the shackles of the environment on human beings. In the early stages of their interaction with their natural environment, humans were greatly influenced by it. They adapted to the dictates of Nature. This is so because the level of technology was very low and the stage of human social development was also primitive. This type of interaction between primitive human society and strong forces of nature was termed “environmental determinism”. At that stage of very low technological development, we can imagine the presence of a naturalised human, who listened to Nature, was afraid of its fury, and worshipped it.
