Most widely held works by Arne Næss
Life's philosophy : reason & feeling in a deeper world by Arne Næss( )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 1,859 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Naess acknowledges the powerlessness of the intellect without the heart, and, like Thoreau before him rejects the Cartesian notion of mind-body separation. He advocates, instead, the integration of reason and emotion - a combination Naess believes will inspire to make changes for the better. Playful and serious, this is a guidebook for finding our way on a planet wrecked by the harmful effects of consumption, popluation growth, commodification, technology and globalization. It is sure to mobilize today's philosophers, environmentalists, policy makers, and the general public into seeking - with whole hearts rather than superficial motives - more effective and timelier solutions."--Jacket

Ecology of wisdom : writings by Arne Naess by Arne Næss( )

21 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Modern Environmentalism owes a great debt to philosopher, professor, and writer Arne Naess, co-founder of the Deep Ecology movement. Here, editors Alan Drengson and Bill Devall provide a comprehensive yet accessible volume of Naess's most groundbreaking and seminal essays, which have remained influential among environmentalists to this day." "These writings, full of Naess's characteristic enthusiasm, wit, and spiritual fascination with nature, provide a look into the remarkable philosophical underpinnings of his own social and ecological activism, as well as an inspiration for all those looking to follow in his footsteps."--Jacket
Is it painful to think? : conversations with Arne Næss by David Rothenberg( Book )

18 editions published between 1993 and 2017 in English and French and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En inventant l'écologie profonde, Arne Naess a donné à l'écologie sa première expression philosophique. Revendiquant l'héritage de Spinoza et de Gandhi, Naess définit l'écologie profonde par opposition à une écologie "superficielle" qui n'aurait pour but que la préservation des ressources en vue du développe-ment des pays riches. Replacer la nature au coeur de la pensée et au centre de nos valeurs : tel est le renversement auquel il invite la philosophie occidentale. Présentée par Luc Ferry comme une menace pour l'humanisme et la démocratie, l'écologie profonde commence - plus de 35 ans après sa fondation - à retenir l'attention des milieux intellectuels français. Dans ce savoureux dialogue auto-biographique avec son complice David Rothenberg, Næss nous emmène dans quelques-uns de ses lieux de prédilection, et revient sur son parcours intellectuel et humain. De sa formation en philosophie à son amour de la montagne, en passant par ses activités de résistant, on refait avec lui le chemin qui l'a conduit à quitter l'université pour mettre en oeuvre cette «révolution copernicienne»

Inleiding tot de toegepaste logica
Einstein's theory : a rigorous introduction for the mathematically untrained by Øyvind Grøn( )

17 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an introduction to the theory of relativity and the mathematics used in its processes. Three elements of the book make it stand apart from previously published books on the theory of relativity. First, the book starts at a lower mathematical level than standard books with tensor calculus of sufficient maturity to make it possible to give detailed calculations of relativistic predictions of practical experiments. Self-contained introductions are given, for example vector calculus, differential calculus and integrations. Second, in-between calculations have been included, making it possible for the non-technical reader to follow step-by-step calculations. Thirdly, the conceptual development is gradual and rigorous in order to provide the inexperienced reader with a philosophically satisfying understanding of the theory. The goal of this book is to provide the reader with a sound conceptual understanding of both the special and general theories of relativity, and gain an insight into how the mathematics of the theory can be utilized to calculate relativistic effects
The selected works of Arne Naess by Arne Næss( )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arne Naess is considered one of the most important philosophers of the twentieth century. He has been a tremendously prolific author, yet his works as a whole have remained largely unavailable - until now. Springer made available for the first time, a definitive 10-volume collection of Arne Naess life's works: "The Selected Works of Arne Naess". "The Selected Works of Arne Naess" (SWAN) presents a major overview of Arne Naess thinking and provides an extensive collection of this prolific philosopher's principal writings. Some of Naess most important publications have never before been available in English. Many others are out of print. Often, his papers were published in obscure and inaccessible journals. And because Naess has been so prolific, many of his most important papers still remain unpublished. The publication of SWAN makes Naess work more fully accessible to scholars, students, and critics alike
