9780226450179: The Embers and the Stars a Philosophical Inquiry into the Moral Sense of Nature

"It is hard to put this profound book into a category. Despite the author's criticisms of Thoreau, it is more like Walden than any other book I have read. . . . The book makes great strides toward bringing the best insights from medieval philosophy and from contemporary environmental ethics together. Anyone interested in both of these areas must read this book."—Daniel A. Dombrowski, The Thomist

"Those who share Kohák's concern to understand nature as other than a mere resource or matter in motion will find his temporally oriented interpretation of nature instructive. It is here in particular that Kohák turns moments of experience to account philosophically, turning what we habitually overlook or avoid into an opportunity and basis for self-knowledge. This is an impassioned attempt to see the vital order of nature and the moral order of our humanity as one."—Ethics

From the Back Cover:

The quest of this volume is one of recalling what we have thus hidden from ourselves. It is a philosopher's book, deeply indebted to the cultural heritage of three millennia of Western thought. It is also a book of philosophy, though in a sense far older than the current acceptation of that term.

About the Author:

Erazim Kohák is professor of philosophy at Boston University. His many books include a study of Husserl's phenomenology, Idea and Experience, also published by the University of Chicago Press.
