Revue de presse

“This book has enabled me to better understand the passion for exploring rocky heights.  …There is a common twine that goes the whole length in Climbing , namely the love each of these authors and the editor have for climbing.  If practices flourish primarily because of the dedication and commitment of the communities involved with them, one thing is clear, climbing is a very healthy practice in spite of and thanks to its beautifully inspiring risks, and Climbing is a great contribution to the climbing and philosophical communities.”  ( Sport, Ethics and Philosophy , 28 February 2012) "This nonetheless should not serve as a negative commentary on what proves to be a most thoughtful and engaging collection of articles that serve to intellectualize what is thought by many to be a purely adrenaline–fueled endeavor . . If you think, however, that there is no reason for anyone else to climb or that climbing is silly or pointless or just plain crazy, this book just might make you think again." (Aethlon, 1 January 2011) "The book is a pretty in–depth look at various issues, centring around risk, ethics and other issues. It also includes essays that challenge commonly accepted views of climbing and climbing ethics." (The Philosopher′s Eye, 2010) "Read carefully within the four themed sections; the essays provoke an intellectual frisson rarely elicited by modern climbing literature." (Climbing.com, 2010) "[ Climbing – Philosophy for Everyone: Because It′s There] proves to be a most thoughtful and engaging collection of articles that serve to intellectualize what is thought by many to be a purely adrenaline–fueled endeavor." ( aethlon , January 2011"If you′re interested in why we climb and take risks for what many consider a frivolous activity, then add this book to your holiday gift list. It will provide lots of entertaining reading and spark interesting conversations around the nightly campfire." (About.com, 11 December 2010) "The authors are both climbers and academics (almost all in philosophy), so the essays ring with rigor and authenticity..... the essays provoke an intellectual frisson rarely elicited by modern climbing literature." ( Climbing Magazine , October 2010) "This has to be the best book I have read on the subject of climbing. Most of the essays are written by seasoned climbers and ... are varied and interesting. Many of the questions put forth are of the moral and ethical reasons for climbing, and they also address many other aspects of the climbing game. The novice climber can definitely benefit from reading this book also as it explores several topics that are not easily found in a text about climbing. I believe that this book will enable all who read it to consider deeply what it is that they are doing while they are climbing and as a result be able to be better climbers not only to the climbing community but will understand their inner motivations about their own climbing." ( OregonLive.com , August 2010) 

 

Quatrième de couverture

Both climbing and philosophy are serious endeavors. However, if you make a mistake while engaging in philosophy, it may be ego–bruising, but it won’t kill you. In mountain and rock climbing, even the simplest error in judgment can be life threatening. Given the inherent risks of most climbing pursuits, why would anyone subject themselves to “tying in”? What does the risk bring? Is it ever justified? And why do so many non–climbers find the inherent risks of climbing unacceptable? Climbing – Philosophy for Everyone  presents a thought–provoking collection of new essays that not only address the issue of why climbers engage in such an intrinsically risky pursuit, but also plunge into the philosophical void to consider such intellectually stimulating topics as: Character traits that climbing develops and that are most valuable for summit quests Ethical debates pertaining to rules defining climbing styles and ethics of free soloing Concerns about climbers’ impact on the environment and the manufacturing of holds The hazards in evaluating one′s own climbing abilities Climbing culture as a gift economy and the sheer beauty of climbing Demonstrating the rich connections between climbing and philosophical reflection, Climbing – Philosophy for Everyone  invites us to ponder aspects of behavior that can give deeper meaning to the challenges and struggles of everyday life.
