Norwegian philosopher Arne Naess is known primarily as the originator of the term "deep ecology", although his thoughts and approaches have been touched and shaped by all the major events of our times. His precise thinking has been applied to all of the great contemporary dilemmas and is central to the emergence of ecology as a political force. Through a series of conversations spanning Naess's complex life, David Rothenberg presents the man of natural philosophy in his own words. "Is It Painful To Think?" is the story of a thinker of the 20th century. What emerges is the personal vision of a life imbued with ecology, which reveals in most human terms how respect for and contact with the natural world can provide the foundation for a total view of the vast problems of humanity and our place in the world.
