Review "An inspired and beautiful meditation on our present predicament." Richard Walthers, green@work Magazine "...heartfelt and well-informed." Gard Binney The Ecologift "Shierry Nicholsen has fashioned a warm meditation on our chilling capacity for oblivion." David Abram, author of The Spell of the Sensuous "...heartfelt and well-informed." Gard Binney The Ecologist "This book pulls together literatures from art and psychology with a persuasive argument that they need to be considered together in order to answer questions that will be asked by more and more people: What are the roots of the persistent denial and destructiveness that characterize so much of human behavior in relation to the natural environment? What paths of affirmation can lead us out of this impasse? The book forms an eloquent plea for people to break through barriers of defensiveness in order to give loving attention and responsible care to the natural world... and in doing so, to their own full human potential."--Louise Chawla, Whitney Young College, Kentucky State UniversityPlease note: Endorser gives permission to excerpt from quote. "With a close reading of a century of important psychological sources, Shierry Nicholsen brings the human mind back to ecology, thereby deepening the reach of environmental concern. A lucid, heartfelt, and inspiring book."--David Rothenberg, Professor of Philosophy, New Jersey Institute of Technology, author of Hand's End and Sudden Music "In a time of catastrophe it is rare and important to open a book that speaks so profoundly to the problem of human destructiveness without losing sight of the equally human capacity for reparation. The Love of Nature and the End of the World is such a book. Remarkably lucid but never facile, it opens our minds to the overwhelming question of the fate of the earth while offering an intense awareness of what it means be overwhelmed and to suffer trauma. Nicholsen's writing, at once erudite and simple, weaves so effortlessly between psychoanalysis and social thought that we can hardly believe they were ever separate and often inaccessible modes of thinking."--Jessica Benjamin, psychoanalyst, author of The Bonds of Love and Shadow of the Other About the Author Anne Drapkin Lyerly, M.D., is an Assistant Professor in the Departmentof Obstetrics and Gynecology and a Faculty Associate inthe Center for the Study of Medical Ethics and Humanities at Duke University.
