Norwegian eco-political philosopher Arne Naess is interviewed by spry young American academic David Rothenberg. Subjects span Arne's entire life consciousness. It is intriguing to see how the 20th century movement called Deep Ecology was shaped not only by Naess' work in ethics and communication theory, but also by his spiritual communion with non-human intelligence, and his "Panzercharakter" defensive shell. These personal interviews reveal that the spiritually transcendent militancy of Gandhi's "satyagraha" - which Naess has made so key to modern ecological activism - appealed to him emotionally as well as philosophically.

David Rothenberg UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA M I N N E A P O L I S. PRESS. The title asks the question, Is it painful to think? Arne believes that it is, but it is a pain we should not shirk, a suffering we must learn to love the more we engage in it. Society sets us up to be free of this necessary pain, so we need to turn against the rules and question what lies around us. It is not an easy route –this old path toward doubt. Enough philosophers have beckoned us onto it throughout history, but few have had such a good time along it as Arne.
