The Spell of the Sensuous: Perception and Language in a More-Than-Human Worldby David Abram
Animal tracks, word magic, the speech of stones, the power of letters, and the taste of the wind all figure prominently in this intellectual tour de force that returns us to our senses and to the sensuous terrain that sustains us. This is a major work of ecological philosophy that startles the senses out of habitual ways of perception.

Few works command the senses of the reader as this one does. I feel the world Abrams describes. I can smell the air after it rains. I can see the delicate silk of the spider. I can taste the earth as I can see the imagary between the words. I am now reading the bibliography and using the material as a source for an even greater understanding of the world around me. David has proven that Dr Doolittle exists in us all.
