Summary: "Now available in English for the first time, Norwegian philosopher Arne Naess's meditation on the art of living is an exhortation to preserve the environment and biodiversity. Like a "universal great-grandfather," he offers a bright and bold perspective on the power of feelings to move us away from ecological and cultural degradation toward sound, future-focused policy and action." "Naess acknowledges the powerlessness of the intellect without the heart, and, like Thoreau before him rejects the Cartesian notion of mind-body separation. He advocates, instead, the integration of reason and emotion - a combination Naess believes will inspire to make changes for the better. Playful and serious, this is a guidebook for finding our way on a planet wrecked by the harmful effects of consumption, popluation growth, commodification, technology and globalization. It is sure to mobilize today's philosophers, environmentalists, policy makers, and the general public into seeking - with whole hearts rather than superficial motives - more effective and timelier solutions."--BOOK JACKET.
