Philosopher Kathleen Dean Moore’s latest book is like a basket of seashells and pinecones: Each essay is a precise, self-contained bit of truth. Her central theme, that the well-being of humans cannot be separated from that of the rest of the planet, is familiar to many of us. By grounding her ideas in the tangible details of island and rivers, however, she also leaves us with a tang of salt air and something fresh to ponder.
