Review:

A sparkling collection of essays from some of today’s liveliest minds writing in a broadly phenomenological tradition. It highlights the complexity of our experience of nature, the range of metaphors, narratives and normativities woven into the idea of nature, and the relevance of an experiential approach to how our understanding of nature impacts education, decolonization and aesthetics. A compelling addition to the environmental philosophy literature. (David Wood, W. Alton Jones Professor of Philosophy and Professor of European Studies, Vanderbilt University)

Nature and Experience is an important contribution to the ongoing development of eco-phenomenology and environmental hermeneutics. Grounded in a commitment to the relationality at the heart of the phenomenological project, this volume sparkles with insight on topics as varied as anthropocentrism, moral responsibility, metaphor, ecological imagination, environmental justice, and aesthetics—and does so in a manner that is eminently accessible. (Brian Treanor, Charles S. Casassa Chair and Professor of Philosophy, Loyola Marymount University)

Book Description Rowman Littlefield International, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. What do we mean when we speak about and advocate for nature ? Do inanimate beings possess agency, and if so what is its structure? What role does metaphor play in our understanding of and relation to the environment? How does nature contribute to human well-being? By bringing the concerns and methods of phenomenology to bear on questions such as these, this book seeks to redefine how environmental issues are perceived and discussed and demonstrates the relevance of phenomenological inquiry to a broader audience in environmental studies. The book examines what phenomenology must be like to address the practical and philosophical issues that emerge within environmental philosophy, what practical contributions phenomenology might make to environmental studies and policy making more generally, and the nature of our human relationship with the environment and the best way for us to engage with it.
