Matter And Desire: An Erotic Ecology

In Matter And Desire, Internationally Renowned Biologist And Philosopher Andreas Weber Rewrites Ecology As A Tender Practice Of Forging Relationships, Of Yearning For Connections, And Of Expressing These Desires Through Our Bodies. Being Alive Is An Erotic Process--constantly Transforming The Self Through Contact With Others, Desiring Ever More Life. In Clever And Surprising Ways, Weber Recognizes That Love--the Impulse To Establish Connections, To Intermingle, To Weave Our Existence Poetically Together With That Of Other Beings--is A Foundational Principle Of Reality. The Fact That We Disregard This Principle Lies At The Core Of A Global Crisis Of Meaning That Plays Out In The Avalanche Of Species Loss And In Our Belief That The World Is A Dead Mechanism Controlled Through Economic Efficiency. Although Rooted In Scientific Observation, Matter And Desire Becomes A Tender Philosophy For The Anthropocene, A Poetic Materialism, That Closes The Gap Between Mind And Matter. Ultimately, Weber Discovers, In Order To Save Life On Earth--and Our Own Meaningful Existence As Human Beings--we Must Learn To Love.
