Présentation de l'éditeur

This unique and highly-acclaimed small volume shows - primarily through Dr. Schweitzer's own words - how his philosophy of "reverence for life" developed, from childhood, as his long life unfolded.

It demonstrates how the philosopher-physician-musician carried out his philosophy at his African hospital, in Europe and the U.S.A and how he inspired the animal protection and environmental awakening.

It describes his bond with individual animals and how he coped with the paradox of the "will-to-live" vs. "the will-to-live."

His memorable words, the sensitive commentary and the appealing photographs combine to present forcefully and gracefully Dr. Schweitzer's guidance to all persons troubled by disrespect of the natural word and all that dwell therein.

This book, which was originally published in 1982, has gone into eight printings.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An excellent introduction to the compassion of Schweitzer. 28 juillet 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur
Albert Schweitzer (along with Joseph Campbell) should be required reading for all. No one says it better than Schweitzer and there are so many gems in this book. It is a small book which you can open to any page and read a paragraph or two. It is broken into small segments with wonderful pictures. Schweitzer lived his message. "We must realize that all life is valuable and that we are united to all life. From this knowledge comes our spiritual relationship with the universe" - Albert Schweitzer. Buy ten and pass them on!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A "must have" for humane educators 25 février 2002
Par cmaibusch - Publié sur
There are many books about Albert Schweitzer, and I have a lot of them. If the reader is specifically interested in the "Reverence for Life" aspect of Dr. Schweitzer's life, definitely check out this book. He was such a multi-faceted man but this book is specifically about how his "Reverence for Life" philosophy related to the animal world, indeed all the natural world. In small written tidbits this book takes the reader on the whole journey from his questions about animal life as a child through to his philosophy of respect for animal life as an adult. I would still encourage any Schweitzer afficianado (sp?) to check out biography-type books of his life to get the whole picture but for those interested specifically in his views on animals and "Reverence for Life", this is the book for you!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I wish Schweitzer were here now. 22 décembre 2002
Par Marilyn Dalrymple - Publié sur
This small volume exposes a compassionate, caring and thoughtful man. At the time Schweitzer was living, speaking out for animals - and all living things - wasn't a popular thing to do. He wasn't shy about voicing his feelings, though, and he spoke about animals and their value with great eloquence. This book contains many wonderful quotations, gives a brief but interesting introduction to Schweitzer's life. I've had this book for many years and still find myself enjoying it, learning from it, and valuing it.

A stunning summary or consolidation of Albert Schweitzer's philosophical ethic, Reverence For Life.
And a brilliant introduction to the man considered to be one of the greatest human beings of the 20th century.
In its brevity the author manages to explain how Dr. Schweitzer articulated compassion and created a world view from it.
It should absolutely be required reading!
