About this product
- DescriptionIn this capstone work, the late Bruce Wilshire seeks to rediscover the fullness of life in the world by way of a more complete activation of the body's potentials. Appealing to our powers of hearing and feeling, with a special emphasis on music, he engages a rich array of composers, writers, and thinkers ranging from Beethoven and Mahler to Emerson and William James. Wilshire builds on James's concept of the much-at-once to name the superabundance of the world that surrounds, urishes, holds, and stimulates us; that pummels and provokes us; that responds to our deepest need-to feel ecstatically real.
- Author BiographyBruce W. Wilshire was Senior Professor of Philosophy at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, until his retirement in 2009. He died in 2013.
