Life as the Schema of Freedom
Bruce Matthews - Author

Locates in Schelling a new understanding of our relation to nature in philosophy.

The life and ideas of F. W. J. Schelling are often overlooked in favor of the more familiar Kant, Fichte, or Hegel. What these three lack, however, is Schelling’s evolving view of philosophy.

Anne Marie Dalton - Author
Henry C. Simmons - Author

Looks at how ecotheology has created a new vision of the natural world and the place of humans within it.

Matthew Calarco - Editor

Levinas on politics, postcolonialism and globalization, animals and the environment, and science and technology.

Eilon Schwartz traces the history...(Read More)
 
 
If Creation Is a Gift
If Creation Is a Gift (March 2009)
Mark Manolopoulos - Author

Brings an ecotheological perspective to postmodern gift theory.

What if our world were considered a gift? Extending postmodern gift theory to ecological and ecotheological concerns, Mark Manolopoulos explores how “creation”—the what-is—can be seen as a gift. Creation, when viewed in a radically egalitarian way, is the matrix of all material things—human, otherwise-than-human, or humanly...(Read More)
