Customer Review

on 9 February 2011
I am not an animist, but this book is the best example of "ecophenomenology" I have read. Abram's application of Merleau-Ponty's phenomenology to the question of our relation to - or better, our being-completely-a-part-of - all nature is full of insight and philosophical and practical potential. The ability of this philosophical approach to nature to address actual experience of many of us who feel the world's and universe's specialness is very impressive. In terms of more spiritual-theological tradition, Abram reminds me of Schleiermacher (at-one-ness with nature as the basis of spirituality), even though the latter is, of course, a liberal Christian, and Abram is an animist. All in all, this book is philosophically and "environmentally inspiring".
