Wilderness and the Heart Henry Bugbee's Philosophy of Place, Presence and Memory by Alasdair MacIntyre

Wilderness and the Heart Henry Bugbee's Philosophy of Place, Presence and Memory


Wilderness and the Heart Henry Bugbee's Philosophy of Place, Presence and Memory by Alasdair MacIntyre

Sixteen contemporary philosophers celebrate Henry Bugbee's philosophy. The essays trace his explorations of thought, emotion and the need for a sense of place attuned to wilderness. Representing a range of traditions, the thinkers included touch on a broad spectrum of inquiry, including existential philosophy, religion and environmental studies.


Henry Bugbee's The Inward Morning is one of the most important American philosophical texts in the second half of the twentieth century. Wilderness and the Heart is a gathering of first-rate essays that establish the intellectual and cultural contexts environing Bugbee and his work. These essays capture the spirit of Bugbee's philosophical journal and reveal, in a variety of directions, the contemporary significance of his work. These directions include the continuities between Bugbee's writing and phenomenology, Asian thought, philosophy of the envirnoment, and the work of Thoreau. This book is an important first step in introducing Bugbee's writing to a wider audience. --Doug Anderson
