A Place in Space: Ethics, Aesthetics and Watersheds. New and Selected Prose.
by [Essays] Snyder, Gary.
Washington D.C. :
A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. This copy is signed by Snyder! In this classic collection of 29 pieces that span half a century, Gary Snyder explores our complex, ever-evolving attitudes toward the environment. He argues that nature is not separate from humanity, but intrinsic to it, and that since societies are natural constructs, it’s imperative to go beyond racial, ethnic, and religious identities to find a shared concern for acts that benefit humans and nonhumans alike. Included in the collection is his 1971 environmental manifesto “Four Changes,” which, as he writes in a postscript, is unfortunately truer than ever.
