Animism : Respecting the Living World Paperback / softback
Paperback / softback
Animism' is now an important term for describing ways in which some people understand and engage respectfully with the larger-than-human world.
Its central theme is our relationship with our other-than-human neighbours, such as animals, plants, rocks, and kettles, rooted in the understanding that the term 'person' includes more than humans.
Graham Harvey explores the animist cultures of Native Americans, Maori, Aboriginal Australians and eco-Pagans, introducing their diversity and considering the linguistic, performative, ecological and activist implications of these different animisms.
