Klappentext:
Humans manifest nature. We are flesh and bone, pursue alimentary satisfactions and necessities, traffic in carbon, oxygen, and chemical processes. Yet humans are ethically unique. We live from elements that exceed the interactions of simple, discrete atoms and their reactions, elements that possess us and to which we respond with responsibility. But others live from the same elements that we do, seek the same place in the sun as us, and call on us to support that life. The milieu of existence is the elemental, the air we breathe, the water we pull into our cells, the earth that nourishes. On the other hand, the milieu of human existence is a social moment of unavoidable response, whose element is inexorable trust. This work explores our relation to the elements and to other humans under the notion of chôra. Drawing on Hercalitus, Plato, Bachelard, Levinas and others, Facing Nature advocates looking beyond atomistic cosmology, and atomistic understandings of human being.
