By Gaston Bachelard Trans. Kenneth Haltman Although English translations of the other books in the series on the elements - air, water and fire - are available from Dallas Institute Publications, this is the first translation of his 1978 work on earth. Totaling 418 pages, this book is by far the weightiest, perhaps appropriately so, as earth itself is heavy. In Earth and Reveries of Will, Bachelard augments our understanding with vibrant images of earth in its initiating, active role. A companion volume, Earth and Reveries of Repose, will be the final work in this series.

Gaston Bachelard is acclaimed as one of the most significant modern thinkers of France. From 1929 to 1962 he wrote twenty-three books concerned with the philosophy of science and the analysis of the imagination of matter. His teaching career included posts at the College de Bar-sur-Aube, the University of Dijon, and from 1940 to 1962 the chair of history and philosophy of science at the Sorbonne. He received the Grand Prix National des Lettres in 1961--one of only three philosophers ever to have achieved this honor. The influence of his thought can be felt in all disciples of the humanities--art, architecture, literature, poetics, psychology, philosophy, and language.Language Notes:
