Nature in Asian Traditions of Thought: Essays in Environmental Philosophy
Nature in Asian Traditions of Thought: Essays in Environmental Philosophy
Description
From the Jacket:

For our environmental problems what is needed is a new way of looking at nature. Here, the authors turn to the Asian tradition. Asking if they can provide us with conceptual resources for addressing environmental concerns. Western environmental philosophers and some of our most distinguished representatives of Asian and comparative philosophy critically consider what Asia has to offer. The first section provides an ecological world view as a basis for comparison. Subsequent as a basis for comparison. Subsequent section provides an ecological world view as a basis for comparison. Subsequent section include chapters by leading, contemporary scholars in Chinese, Japanese, Indian, and Buddhist thought that explore the Western perception of Asian philosophy is a rich conceptual resource for contemporary environmental thinkers.

"This book promises to provide an intellectual and an ethical incentive which will encourage its Western audience to reflect on the course of Western history that has led to the concerns addressed within. It would serve as valuable reading for anyone who is interested in the environment and in exploring new and traditionally Asian approaches to this crucial subject" - Shigenori Nagatomo, Temple University.

Testimonials

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
