BECOMING ANIMAL DAVID ABRAM PDF

Applied Ecology Review quote "A wild book in every sense of the word, full of stories that will leave you trembling, but even fuller of ideas that will send you out into the world with new eyes. Things each of us once knew, but forgot when we were born into the 19th and 20th centuries. Extraordinary rediscoveries! Those of us who still hope for a revolutionary change in our thinking toward animals, the living land and the climate will welcome this book. Abram is an audacious thinker, a true visionary, and, really, just a damn good nature writer. Prose as lush as a moss-draped rain forest and as luminous as a high desert night.

Applied Ecology Review quote "A wild book in every sense of the word, full of stories that will leave you trembling, but even fuller of ideas that will send you out into the world with new eyes. Things each of us once knew, but forgot when we were born into the 19th and 20th centuries. Extraordinary rediscoveries! Those of us who still hope for a revolutionary change in our thinking toward animals, the living land and the climate will welcome this book.

Abram is an audacious thinker, a true visionary, and, really, just a damn good nature writer. Prose as lush as a moss-draped rain forest and as luminous as a high desert night.

Deeply resonant with indigenous ways of knowing, Abram lets us listen in on wordless conversations with ancient boulders, walruses, birds, and roof beams. His profound recognition of intelligences other than our own enables us to enter into reciprocal symbioses that can, in turn, sustain the world. Becoming Animal illuminates a way forward in restoring relationship with the earth, led by our vibrant animal bodies to re-inhabit the glittering world.

Prepare for a wild, profound ride into the essence of the human animal--an essence embedded in communion with the Earth. A must read for anyone concerned about the future of the planet and ourselves.

This is a beautifully written, deeply moving, and important book. Its teachings leap off the page and translate immediately into lived experience. The language is luminous, the style hypnotic.

Abram weaves a spell that brings the world alive. His celebratory embrace of all that surrounds him is refreshing in the extreme. An exercise of uncanny imagination. His book is transformative, animated by piercing observations and hallucinatory intensity. Abram shows brilliantly how this body brings us back to Earth in a series of acutely moving descriptions of its polysensory genius. An original work of primary philosophy, it is written with verve, passion, and poetry.

His prior book, The Spell of the Sensuous: Perception and Language in a More-than-Human World, helped catalyze the emergence of several new disciplines, including the burgeoning field of ecopsychology. The recipient of a Lannan Literary Award for Nonfiction, David was named by both the Utne Reader and the British journal Resurgence as one of a hundred visionaries transforming contemporary culture.

His writings on the cultural causes and consequences of environmental disarray are published in numerous magazines, scholarly journals, and anthologies.
