New book on hunting
« on: September 13, 2010, 03:39:53 pm »
Thereís a new book out on hunting. Itís called Hunting--Philosophy for Everyone: In Search of the Wild Life, edited by Nathan Kowalsky, with a foreword by David Petersen. I want to thank all of you whose thoughtful reflections on bow-making and bow-hunting contributed to the essay I wrote for the book. My piece is only one of many in the book.

Many of the essays debate the pros and cons of hunting, with the arguments in favor of hunting predominating. Many of arguments will be familiar to hunters, but it is good to see them laid out in a systematic fashion. What they say can add to the explanations you give to your non-hunting buddies. The book is from the series, Philosophy for Everyone, so the writing is good, rather than being full of academic jargon. Thereís a really fine essay by the biologist Valerius Geist on how hunting has played a significant role in human development, plus lots of other provocative pieces.

Hereís a link that has more info about the book.
