For the sake of all of us finite beings18 novembre 2014
- Publié sur Amazon.com
Professor Bryan Bannon has given us a rare, beautiful and important book. This is urgently needed, in a world afflicted by polemical wars over our climate and ecological crises, and by the related organised criminal conspiracies that buzz around the banking, marketing, media and political practices of our economies. Bannon argues convincingly that, in the midst of this common distress, we can and should share a better way of making sense of why things are falling apart and how they and we may come together for the sake of peace, healing, justice and conviviality. As our crises require, this is an ambitious and demanding book, that energises our responses through enabling us to rethink, from the roots upward, and from the skies downwards, our prejudices, assumptions and sensibilities. Bannon sees and argues clearly that as we make progress in coming together, though and beyond the double-binding dualities that confine and distort us, exhausting our energies, we may celebrate the wider and deeper understanding (shall we dare to say wisdom?) that can guide us reliably in the way(s) of life.
For a helpful and illuminating philosophical review, at greater length, see - with the help of your preferred search engine - free online at the Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews site (#2014.11.15) the review by Professor Michael E. Zimmerman. This reviewer assesses Bannon's strategy and arguments judiciously and is justly enthusiastic.
