About this book

In this book, earth, air, fire and water are explored as both philosophical ideas and environmental issues associated with their classical and perennial conceptions. The author embarks upon a wide-ranging discussion of their initial appearance in ancient Greek thought as mythic forces or scientific principles to their recent reemergence within contemporary continental philosophy as a means for understanding landscape and language, poetry and place, the body and the body politic. In so doing, he shows the importance of elemental thinking for comprehending and responding to ecological problems.
