The “Other World” Is Here

Environmental Philosophy 8 (1):101-119 (2011)
Abstract
If how we envisage substances prepares the trajectory of our behavior towards them, art objects, substantial through the manner of their fashioning, can reorderhow we comport ourselves in a world that is not for us, to the extent that what we call by the name of “world” cannot be apprehended as the price paid for humanavarice when confronting a global plenitude sacrificed, always, to the scale of our need for it. To frustrate that desolation, we must enrich our view of things, andthis essay examines the thinking of Merleau-Ponty and Virginia Woolf at the service of that imperative
