Life's philosophy : reason & feeling in a deeper world by Arne Næss( Book )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Naess acknowledges the powerlessness of the intellect without the heart, and, like Thoreau before him rejects the Cartesian notion of mind-body separation. He advocates, instead, the integration of reason and emotion - a combination Naess believes will inspire to make changes for the better. Playful and serious, this is a guidebook for finding our way on a planet wrecked by the harmful effects of consumption, popluation growth, commodification, technology and globalization. It is sure to mobilize today's philosophers, environmentalists, policy makers, and the general public into seeking - with whole hearts rather than superficial motives - more effective and timelier solutions."--Jacket

7 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Modern Environmentalism owes a great debt to philosopher, professor, and writer Arne Naess, co-founder of the Deep Ecology movement. Here, editors Alan Drengson and Bill Devall provide a comprehensive yet accessible volume of Naess's most groundbreaking and seminal essays, which have remained influential among environmentalists to this day." "These writings, full of Naess's characteristic enthusiasm, wit, and spiritual fascination with nature, provide a look into the remarkable philosophical underpinnings of his own social and ecological activism, as well as an inspiration for all those looking to follow in his footsteps."--Jacket
Einstein's theory : a rigorous introduction for the mathematically untrained by Øyvind Grøn( Book )

First, the book starts at a lower mathematical level than standard books with tensor calculus of sufficient maturity to make it possible to give detailed calculations of relativistic predictions of practical experiments.
