5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! Essential Reading, 9 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Dreams (Paperback)
I have read many of Derrick Jensen's books and this is, I think, one of his best.

All his works are focused on a central question: why do we allow this culture to continue to destroy the planet? A good place to start is the first book I read "A Language Older Than Words."

"Dreams" concentrates on what the author calls "the other side", i.e. the non-physical, non-material, yet living parts of existence than western science refuses to acknowledge. For all our technological expertise, we blunt our awareness of the richness of life by denying anything our science is unable to validate. This one reason why this culture is rapidly oblitering the world we live in since we believe that only humans (and superior western humans at that) matter. What arrogance.

Dreams is a mixture of the philosophical and the personal, and is a bravely written book. Mind you, as the world burns, what do we have to lose? Read it!
