Example text

This different ontology is thus seen as a condition of possibility for our conversations with nature which, as we will see, include ethics as well. To achieve this goal of “community” and “association” with nature however means that, like in the case of the landscape, we must let nature act on us in order to grasp the active part nature plays in our lives, with us, through our bodies. This partly explains the fascination of these philosophers for Heidegger’s and MerleauPonty’s phenomenological narratives concerning Being or nature.

Limits of knowledge set limits to domination, and that fact shows the ethical relevance of metaphysical experiences. The ethical relevance of aesthetical arguments in environmental debates is often contested, as has been mentioned. One of the reasons are the difficulties involved in deferring ethical claims from claims of beauty (Carlson and Lintott 2008). Even if aesthetical categories are extended beyond beauty, and other experiences of nature are included in a list of aesthetical values of nature, it is difficult to delineate their meaning.

In his lecture on metaphysics, he formulates metaphysics as a questioning about the world where the inquiring subject is part of the question (Heidegger 1929). The 18 Conversations With Landscape metaphysical questioning, as opposed to questions about the basic principles of the being of objects, is based on a certain experience of being self in the world. Out of wonder over what life is all about the questioning subject raises metaphysical questions about the meaning of being. There are certain emotions (that Heidegger called Stimmungen) that trigger metaphysical questioning.
