From the Back Cover:

Gardens and contemplation have been closely connected since the dawn of philosophy, with many drawing on their beauty and peace for philosophical inspiration. Gardens in turn give rise to a broad spectrum of philosophical questions. For the green-fingered thinker, this book unearths a whole host of fascinating philosophical themes, including:

  • Epicurus and gardens for happiness
  • Plato and gardening as the care of the soul
  • The philosophy of Central Park
  • Kitchen gardens and the history of self-sufficiency
  • The aesthetic and ethical dimensions of gardens

Gardening – Philosophy for Everyone proffers intriguing insights into the historical and continuing deep-rooted connection between philosophy and gardens.
