Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This groundbreaking collection explores the intersection of phenomenology with environmental philosophy. It examines the relevance of Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, and Levinas for thinking through the philosophical dilemmas raised by environmental issues, and then proposes new phenomenological approaches to the natural world. The contributors demonstrate phenomenology's need to engage in an ecological self-evaluation and to root out anthropomorphic assumptions embedded in its own methodology. Calling for a reexamination of beliefs central to the Western philosophical tradition, this book shifts previously marginalized environmental concerns to the forefront and blazes a trail for a new collaboration between phenomenologists and ecologically-minded theorists.

Book News Annotation:

First articulated by Edmund Husserl, phenomenology has been expanded by Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Levinas, and many others. Brown and Toadvine (both: philosophy, Emporia State U.) argue that implicit in all of their writings was ongoing dialogue about the nature of nature that points the way towards an explicitly environmental philosophy. In pursuit of that philosophy, they present 12 essays that address the roots of the new thinking in the phenomenological works of the continental philosophers and attempt to lay the groundwork for an emergent "eco-phenomenology." Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
