About the Title

The novel’s story takes place on a planet called Dune. The novel’s plot, characters, and themes revolve around the issue of humans and their relationship to the natural world. Herbert calls ecology the study of "understanding consequences," and Dune is a dissertation studying the consequences the planet of Arrakis has on the characters, institutions, and other worlds within its universe.
