Man and Nature. The Triple Perspective: Political – Moral – Aesthetical

This book consists of three essays that focus to the three fundamental aspects of Man’s relation to nature: the political, the moral and the aesthetical one.

In the first essay the field of real ecology is defined and it is clearly distinguished, politically, from that of pseudo-ecology, since it includes the ecology of the subject and social ecology as closely and intrinsically related to the ecology of nature-environment.

The second essay concerns Man’s morally deserved attitude towards the animals, through a discussion concerning the recognition of their completely underestimated – and yet, so important – right to pleasure.

In the third essay, finally, the aesthetical approach of nature is unfolded through a paradigmatic discussion, which refers to photographing the birds and to the relation that the look develops with them.
