Horace and Me Life Lessons from an Ancient Poet

Horace and Me Life Lessons from an Ancient Poet

Author: Harry Eyres Format: Paperback Release Date: 17/07/2014

Horace lived at a pivotal moment. Rome was facing a profound crisis: though it ruled the world, the values which had made it great were disintegrating. As efficiency and pragmatism became watchwords, Horace championed the 'supremely useless' endeavour of poetry, and glorified friendship and wine. Horace and Me charts Harry Eyres' evolving relationship with the Latin poet to show how, in an era of affluence and excess which seems to be hurtling out of control, Horace can help us navigate our way in uncertain times.

Seeing Our Planet Whole: A Cultural and Ethical View of Earth Observation

Seeing Our Planet Whole: A Cultural and Ethical View of Earth Observation

Author: Harry Eyres Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 16/06/2018

This book shows how our new-found ability to observe the Earth from the necessary distance has wide and profound cultural and ethical implications. First of all, it is the outcome of speculations and investigations of human beings in relation to their home planet carried out over millennia. In particular, it reveals a split between the ancient idea of the Earth as nurturing mother and the more recent conception of the Earth as a neutral resource able to be infinitely exploited by humankind. The 1968 Earthrise photograph, showing the beauty and fragility of the Earth, helped spark a worldwide environmental movement; now the comprehensive coverage of global change provided by satellites has the potential to convince us beyond reasonable doubt of the huge alterations being wrought upon the Earth and its climate system as a result of human actions, and of the need to act more responsibly.
