By Fred Dallmayr
Sustainability has turn into a compelling subject of household and foreign debate because the international searches for powerful strategies to gathering ecological difficulties. In go back to Nature? An Ecological Counterhistory, Fred Dallmayr demonstrates how nature has been marginalized, colonized, and abused within the sleek period. even though nature used to be considered as a matrix that encompassed all beings in premodern and classical idea, sleek Western thinkers are inclined to fail to remember this unique cohesion, primarily exiling nature from human existence. through a philosophical counterhistory major from Spinoza to Dewey and past, the publication lines successive efforts to right this tendency. Grounding his writing in a holistic relationism that reconnects humanity with ecology, Dallmayr pleads for the reintroduction of nature into modern philosophical dialogue and sociopolitical practice.
Return to Nature? unites studying, intelligence, sensibility, and ethical ardour to provide a multifaceted heritage of philosophy in regards to our position within the flora and fauna. Dallmayr's visionary writings supply an educated beginning for environmental coverage and characterize an impassioned name to reclaim nature in our daily lives.
