Life's philosophy reason & feeling in a deeper world by Arne Næss ( )
12 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 1,225 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."--BOOK JACKET

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

"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."--BOOK JACKET

The selected works of Arne Naess by Arne Næss ( )
7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 324 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
