Book Description

This PDF ebook; “Reading for Wonder: Ecology; Ethics; Enchantment” begins by unfolding the nature and artifice of wonder as a human capacity and as a fabricated experience. In a world awash in awesome; sensual technological experiences; wonder has diverse powers; including awakening us to unexpected ecological entanglements and intimacies. Yet this deeply felt experience — at once aesthetic; cognitive; and ethical — has been dangerously neglected in our cultural education. In order to cultivate the imaginative empathy and caution this feeling evokes; we need to teach ourselves and others to read for wonder.

Ranging across foodstuffs; wonder cabinets; movies; poetry; tropical islands; apes; abstract painting; penguins and more; Reading for Wonder offers an anatomy of wonder in transmedia poetics; then explores its ethical power and political risks from early modern times to our present day. To save ourselves and the teeming life of our planet; indeed to flourish; we must liberate wonder from ideologies of enchantment and disenchantment; understand its workings and their ethical ambivalence; and give it a clear language and voice.
