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
This collection deserves to be read not just by those working in "continental" environmental philosophy but also by environmental philosophers more broadly. Its clear, well-written essays grapple with and reconceptualize some of the area's key questions, and do so in novel and refreshing ways. Many of them would work well even in an undergraduate environmental philosophy course, and could bring something really new to such a setting. * Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
