"In these essays, edited by Edward Mooney, Henry Bugbee's philosophical themes have struck a resonating chord in thinkers as serious as they are diverse. I cannot remember reading material of this kind and finding it so meaningful, helpful, intelligent, and creatively pluralistic."
—John McDermott , author of Streams of Experience: Reflections on the History and Philosophy of American Culture
"In the spiritually stifling atmosphere of current analytical and scientific philosophy, Henry Bugbee's words come like a wave of fresh air. Where could it have come from? It's hard to tell exactly. It's like grace. Our technologized and commercialized culture objectifies the world so automatically, and with such immense short-term profit for some, that we tend to grow oblivious of our whole selves who think, feel, dream. Bugbee wakes us up from forgetfulness, recalls us to immediate involvement in the world, and to luminous, sacred, consummatory presences that can buoy us. Edward Mooney has assembled seventeen excellent articles by as many writers that exhibit and celebrate Bugbee's life and work. Wilderness and the Heart is an important publishing event."
The essays progress from general introductions to considerations of more specific themes in Bugbee’s philosophy to reflections on the man as teacher, mentor, and friend. Provocative in their own right, these contributions provide a commentary on The Inward Morning. This volume thus becomes a valuable tool for the careful reader seeking to fully appreciate the vivid text that has inspired it while at the same time offering insight into contemporary issues in the philosophy of nature.
