Product Description

Review

"This is an outstanding contribution to the field of environmental philosophy/politics. Nothing like it exists in the English-language literature." Michael Zimmerman, Department of Philosophy, Tulane University



"Every so often, a work comes along that is so timely...and this book is one such work." Melissa Clark American Political Science Review



"Every so often, a work comes along that is so timely...this book is one such work." Melissa Clark American Political Science Review



"This is an outstanding contribution to the field of environmental philosophy/politics. Nothing like it exists in the English-language literature."--Michael Zimmerman, Department of Philosophy, Tulane University



"An original and significant contribution to the field. I am not aware of any other works in English that bring these particular theorists to the foreground. This book will appeal to academics working in the field, to postgraduate and advanced undergraduate students, and to a wider public engaged in the more philosophical aspects of environmental problems."--Mathew Humphrey, School of Politics, University of NottinghamPlease note: Endorser gives permission to excerpt from quote.



"Whiteside's discussion of recent French thought is clear, well-written, and informative. He introduces to the English-speaking world theorists who have been unduly neglected, bringing up important issues that will raise the level of analysis and debate in Anglophone ecological discussions."--John P. Clark, Professor of Philosophy and Chairperson, Environmental Studies Program, Loyola UniversityPlease note: Endorser gives permission to excerpt from quote in whole sentences.

No less obscure Oct. 25 2005
By Bernard Krause - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Divided Natures: French Contributions to Political Ecology" covers a broad range of Gaulic political ecophilosophy over the past half century. While an interesting summary and exposition, the author, Kerry Whiteside, does little to hold the attention of the reader for any of several reasons.

I was particularly struck by the feeling that Whiteside has spent very little time exploring aspects of the natural world outside of his head. And therein lies the problem with his conclusions. It's like Alfred North Whitehead's comment of his friend, Bertrand Russell's first Harvard lecture on the Quantum Theory: "I'd like to thank Professor Russell for his brilliant exposition. And especially for leaving unobsecured the vast darkness of the subject."

Bernie Krause, PhD
