Book Description

The volume documents, and makes an original contribution to, an astonishing period in twentieth-century philosophy_the progress of Arne Naess's ecophilosophy from its inception to the present. It includes Naess's most crucial polemics with leading thinkers, drawn from sources as diverse as scholarly articles, correspondence, TV interviews and unpublished exchanges. The book testifies to the skeptical and self-correcting aspects of Naess's vision, which has deepened and broadened to include third world and feminist perspectives. Philosophical Dialogues is an essential addition to the literature on environmental philosophy.

Product Description


For fans and devotees of deep ecology, the book is essential, with its copious collection of relevant articles and Naess's classic but often evasive responses. Environmental Values These debates are thought-provoking, on occasion entertaining, and illustrate something of the development of Naess' thinking about ideas such as unity and self-realization. Environmental Ethics

5.0 out of 5 stars Deep ecology, a clear portrait. 14 Mar. 2015
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book, which outlines the arguments both for and against deep ecology, is unavailable from I had to buy it from with 'contributors' such as A J Ayer, and Paul Feyerabend in the mix it is simply superb as an outline of biocentrism, and the ideas of Arne Naess. I have yet to finish the entire book, but there are simply too many wonderful ideas, and clear writing in here. Way too much to think about! Great find!
