The Last World: The Taoist and Native American Philosophies as a Way of Living in Harmony with Nature
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThis philosophical journey builds a bridge between the Chinese philosophy of Taoism and the Native American beliefs of harmony with the surrounding natural world. Modern American life can overemphasize humanity's control of the land, while religion and spirituality often attempt to achieve harmony and balance in an age of increasing social, economic, and ecological violence. The Hopi people believe that this is the "last world" for humans to set things right with nature. Both Eastern and Western traditions are explored, including Zen, the Cabala, hermetic alchemy, Native American paths, and the philosophies of Plato, Jesus, Spinoza, Nietzsche, Godel, and Merton.
