Inhaltsangabe:

A leading figure in the emerging field of extinction studies, Thom van Dooren puts philosophy into conversation with the natural sciences and his own ethnographic encounters to vivify the cultural and ethical significance of modern-day extinctions. Unlike other meditations on the subject, Flight Ways incorporates the particularities of real animals and their worlds, drawing philosophers, natural scientists, and general readers into the experience of living among and losing biodiversity.

Each chapter of Flight Ways focuses on a different species or group of birds: North Pacific albatrosses, Indian vultures, an endangered colony of penguins in Australia, Hawaiian crows, and the iconic whooping cranes of North America. Written in eloquent and moving prose, the book takes stock of what is lost when a life form disappears from the world -- the wide-ranging ramifications that ripple out to implicate a number of human and more-than-human others. Van Dooren intimately explores what life is like for those who must live on the edge of extinction, balanced between life and oblivion, taking care of their young and grieving their dead. He bolsters his studies with real-life accounts from scientists and local communities at the forefront of these developments. No longer abstract entities with Latin names, these species become fully realized characters enmeshed in complex and precarious ways of life, sparking our sense of curiosity, concern, and accountability toward others in a rapidly changing world.

Buchbeschreibung Columbia University Press, 2014. Buchzustand: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Who are we bound to and in what ways?" This is the question at the heart of this wonderful book. But the "we" here is not limited to "us" -- it includes vultures who help the living take care of the dead, Little penguins who keep returning to deeply storied places, fledging albatrosses who are becoming more and more vulnerable, and mourning crows who can enrich our definitions of grieving. And that changes everything. Because this question is not a simple intellectual proposition. It creates links even as it explores those links in all their dimensions. One finds oneself differently attached after reading this book. A magnificent, sensitive, and marvellously intelligent book. It tells stories of extinction while reinspiring us with life and curiosity. In proposing to move beyond simplistic categories like the natural and the cultural, the biological and the social, the living and the dead, Thom van Dooren reconfigures, in an inventive and brilliant manner, traditional oppositions between species conservation and attention to individuals. With keen attention and contagious curiosity, he explores the multiple forms of living together in a multi-species world. Every page of this book teaches us something about other forms and ways of life, makes us think differently or more deeply than we have been in the habit of thinking, and helps us to do so in company with the beings of other species. Thom van Dooren teaches us that to care passionately can be a weapon of resistance against the forces of destruction. This book is guided by the most philosophical and lively of motives: curiosity with regard to other beings and their ways of life. A curiosity for fleshly creatures -- creatures who are real, concrete, surprising in their complexity, and who become, by way of their histories, more attaching, which is to say more capable of attaching us. This book is magnificent and brilliant. One reason -- not the only nor the least -- is because Thom van Dooren has spent time with the animals whose becoming he is examining. The ethical questions he poses are thus equally ethological questions, questions that demand not only care, but also interest and curiosity. Specific ways of living require specific modes of thought. The stories in this book -- since they are truly stories that enrich our storied worlds -- make this magnificent gamble succeed: to learn other ways of thinking from other forms of life.
