With Nature

Nature Philosophy as Poetics through Schelling, Heidegger, Benjamin and Nancy

With Nature provides new ways to think about our relationship with nature in today’s technologically mediated culture. Warwick Mules makes original connections with German critical philosophy and French poststructuralism in order to examine the effects of technology on our interactions with the natural world. In so doing, the author proposes a new way of thinking about the eco-self in terms of a careful sharing of the world with both human and non human beings. With Nature ultimately argues for a poetics  of everyday life that affirms the place of the human-nature relation as a creative and productive site for ecological self-renewal and redirection.
