We often enjoy the benefits of connecting with nearby, domesticated nature -- a citypark, a backyard garden. But this book makes the provocative case for the necessity of connectingwith wild nature -- untamed, unmanaged, not encompassed, self-organizing, and unencumbered andunmediated by technological artifice. We can love the wild. We can fear it. We are strengthened andnurtured by it. As a species, we came of age in a natural world far wilder than today's, and much ofthe need for wildness still exists within us, body and mind. T he Rediscovery of theWild considers ways to engage with the wild, protect it, and recover it -- for ourpsychological and physical well-being and to flourish as a species. The contributors offer a rangeof perspectives on the wild, discussing such topics as the evolutionary underpinnings of our needfor the wild; the wild within, including the primal passions of sexuality and aggression; birding asa portal to wildness; children's fascination with wild animals; wildness and psychological healing;the shifting baseline of what we consider wild; and the true work ofconservation. The hardcover edition does not include a dust jacket.

Leo Strauss and the Rediscovery of Maimonides

As one observes in Strauss's criticism of John Wild, it is erroneous if not perilous

fashion as the modern Thomists tend to treat Thomas Aquinas, because their

In Leo Strauss and the Rediscovery of Maimonides, Kenneth Hart Green explores the critical role played by Maimonides in shaping Leo Strauss’s thought. In uncovering the esoteric tradition employed in Maimonides’s Guide of the Perplexed, Strauss made the radical realization that other ancient and medieval philosophers might be concealing their true thoughts through literary artifice. Maimonides and al-Farabi, he saw, allowed their message to be altered by dogmatic considerations only to the extent required by moral and political imperatives and were in fact avid advocates for enlightenment. Strauss also revealed Maimonides’s potential relevance to contemporary concerns, especially his paradoxical conviction that one must confront the conflict between reason and revelation rather than resolve it. An invaluable companion to Green’s comprehensive collection of Strauss’s writings on Maimonides, this volume shows how Strauss confronted the commonly accepted approaches to the medieval philosopher, resulting in both a new understanding of Maimonides and a new depth and direction for his own thought. It will be welcomed by anyone engaged with the work of either philosopher.

The Rediscovery of America features some twenty representatives of England, France and America, whose careers in some sense straddled the Atlantic in the last quarter of the eighteenth century. While not establishing causal links between the American and French Revolutions, the collective weight of these individual responses to the new America supports the idea of an 'Atlantic Revolution'. This study of the writings and transatlantic experiences of the revolutionary generation shows the power of American images in shaping political rhetoric, if not political reality.

Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have. Ronald Reagan Deep in the heart of Tasmania, Australia, an American born girl, Riley Obrien, stumbles upon a helpless animal that was once thought to be extinct: the rare and beautiful Thylacine. She takes in the orphan despite the consequences of raising a wild animal. Later, as an adult, Riley continues her work protecting the thylacine from further destruction from man. And yet, while she accomplishes more than she thought she would, she still finds the strength to get through the other obstacles such as love, war, and her worry for her birth country. This is a story of survival, love, hope, determination, and patriotism. And of how just one girl can save and protect an entire species forever.
