A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. In this warm, stimulating brew of personal stories, acclaimed author Kathle en Dean Moore uses the metaphor of an island to challenge the cynicism inhe rent in the Western worldview. A gifted storyteller with a sly sense of hum or, Moore explores three separations brought to us by Enlightenment philoso phers: the separation of human from nature, of things near and far away, an d of the sacred from the mundane. Challenging each, such as Descartes' idea that humans have a discrete consciousness and can alter creation while rem aining unaltered themselves, she reveals why such divisions don't tally wit h the values expressed daily in the way people live. Moore disguises her ph ilosophical explorations in stories: about vacationing on a tiny island in Alaska, visiting her father in the hospital, watching grouse perform their mating dance in the desert. Throughout, she shows that, when properly obser ved, the world is full of opportunities to find hidden connections. Editorial Reviews
