Summary: "What a wonderful idea, to bring together top scholars from both sides of the Atlantic to consider how Thoreau spoke to his own time and how he speaks to ours! Thoreau turns out to be an endlessly fruitful source for new ideas and insights regarding modernity. American readers may find the Europeans' reflections on this quintessentially American writer particularly interesting-although the Americans' essays also provide many valuable new insights. I highly recommend Thoreauvian Modernities ."-Philip Cafaro, author of Thoreau's Living Ethics: Walden and the Pursuit of Virtue. Codice inventario libreria

Riassunto: Does Thoreau belong to the past or to the future? Instead of canonizing him as a celebrant of ?pure? nature apart from the corruption of civilization, the essays in Thoreauvian Modernities reveal edgier facets of his work?how Thoreau is able to unsettle as well as inspire and how he is able to focus on both the timeless and the timely. Contributors from the United States and Europe explore Thoreau?s modernity and give a much-needed reassessment of his work in a global context.

The first of three sections, ?Thoreau and (Non)Modernity,? views Thoreau as a social thinker who set himself against the ?modern? currents of his day even while contributing to the emergence of a new era. By questioning the place of humans in the social, economic, natural, and metaphysical order, he ushered in a rethinking of humanity?s role in the natural world that nurtured the environmental movement. The second section, ?Thoreau and Philosophy,? examines Thoreau?s writings in light of the philosophy of his time as well as current philosophical debates. Section three, ?Thoreau, Language, and the Wild,? centers on his relationship to wild nature in its philosophical, scientific, linguistic, and literary dimensions. Together, these sixteen essays reveal Thoreau?s relevance to a number of fields, including science, philosophy, aesthetics, environmental ethics, political science, and animal studies.

Thoreauvian Modernities posits that it is the germinating power of Thoreau?s thought?the challenge it poses to our own thinking and its capacity to address pressing issues in a new way?that defines his enduring relevance and his modernity.
