    About "Mark Rowlands"

    1. Mark Rowlands

      Mark Rowlands was born in Newport, Wales and began his undergraduate degree at Manchester University in engineering before changing to philosophy He took his doctorate in philosophy from Oxford University and has held various academic positions in philosophy in universities in Britain, Ireland and the US.His best known work is the book The Philosopher and the Wolf about a decade of his life he spent living and travelling with a wolf As The Guardian described it in its review, it is perhaps best described as the autobiography of an idea, or rather a set of related ideas, about the relationship between human and non human animals Reviews were very positive, the Financial Times said it was a remarkable portrait of the bond that can exist between a human being and a beast, Mark Vernon writing in The Times Literary Supplement found the lessons on consciousness, animals and knowledge as engaging as the main current of the memoir, and added that it could become a philosophical cult classic , while John Gray in the Literary Review thought it a powerfully subversive critique of the unexamined assumptions that shape the way most philosophers along with most people think about animals and themselves However, Alexander Fiske Harrison for Prospect warned that if you combine misanthropy and lycophilia, the resulting hybrid, lycanthropy, is indeed interesting, but philosophically quite sterile and that, although Rowlands acknowledges at the beginning of the book that he cannot think like a wolf for such a capable philosopher and readable author not to have made the attempt is indeed an opportunity missed As a professional philosopher, Rowlands is known as one of the principal architects of the view known as vehicle externalism or the extended mind, and also for his work on the moral status of animals.

    1. This is not a conventionally nice book the author can be a crank carrying around a hypertrophied male ego like a sack of bad gas nor is it a sentimental book Forget Marley Me It is a confession and a provocation, the story of a rootless young man becoming a better, responsible, man by loving a wolf Yes, it s well written Rowlands shares a penchant for employing clear, plain prose with fellow philosopher Colin McGinn and it has a bunch of Big Philosophical Ideas in it, but those aren t the featu [...]


    2. The Philosopher and the Wolf is an astonishing book, both heartbreaking and heart lifting Mark Rowlands experience of living with a wolf leads him to examine what it is to be human In general biologists write books of this kind, but as Rowlands is a philosopher, his perspective is profoundly original The book is a memoir of the author s day to day life with a wolf that leads to a meditation on subjects such as human evil and the pursuit of happiness Above all, this book is a love story that only [...]


    3. Brenin e MarkUm lobo fala com o corpo e o que o corpo de Brenin dizia era bvio fui apanhado Seria talvez de esperar que ele adoptasse uma atitude mais despreocupada e at indiferente em rela o ao assunto do furto N o sei como que o teu prato ficou assim N o fui eu Estava assim quando aqui cheguei Ou at j tinhas comido tudo antes de sa res daqui velho caqu tico Mas os lobos n o fazem essas coisas Eles falam E o que melhor n s conseguimos compreend los O que eles n o sabem fazer mentir E por essa r [...]


    4. The Philosopher and the Wolf Lessons from the Wild on Love, Death and Happiness was kindly provided to me by Netgalley for Open Road Media.This book is part memoir, part story of the 11 years spent with his wolf named Brenin and the impression that he made on his life, and part philosophical interpretation of what it means to be human I can t claim to be a true lover of Philosophy however, this book and the author s writing style kept me engaged The novels main emphasis tends to focus on the dif [...]


    5. I have perused some other reviews of this book here on Those who didn t like it seemed, above all, to be offended by the author s cynical and sometimes brutal depictions of human motivations.So if you want to read a book that praises and flatters humanity and your sense of yourself, then stay away If you don t mind taking a hard look at yourself and admitting that humans are by far the most brutal and evil species on Earth, then you might appreciate this book.Here s a characteristic passage The [...]


    6. E la nostra sfida che ci redimeMolto bello Il mio tipo di libro Mi aspettavo un romanzo, in realt pi una raccolta di brevi saggi filosofici, di tono divulgativo, che non si perdono in formalismo ma vanno subito al punto per trasmettere qualcosa Tutti partono dalla storia romanzo di sottofondo, quella dell autore e del suo lupo Il fascino dell animale si sovrappone cos a profonde ed intelligenti riflessioni sulla civilt ed il contratto sociale, sull evoluzione dell uomo e su cosa ci contraddistin [...]


    7. I wasn t sure about this until I got to the second page.This is also a book about what it means to be human not as a biological entity but as a creature that can do things no other creatures can In the stories we tell about ourselves, our uniqueness is a common refrain According to some, this lies in our ability to create civilization, and so protect ourselves from nature, red in tooth and claw Others point to the fact that we are the only creatures that can understand the difference between goo [...]


    8. Sono entusiasta di questo libro, quindi niente di oggettivo in questa recensione, sappiatelo Fratello Rowlands, quante volte ho scrollato il capoccione in segno di approvazione, leggendoti, abbiamo viaggiato assieme per un pezzo di strada, anche se io non avevo un lupo che insegnasse, ma cani si, sotto i 35 chili e sempre rigorosamente bastardi figli di canili o salvati da morte certa come la levriera che abbiamo ora Anche il vegetarianesimo arrivato a poco a poco, da loro, avendomi fatto compre [...]


    9. This is a book with three entwined strands There is the story of Brenin, the author s wolf his life and behaviour, and his impact on Rowlands own life There are philosophical discussions that spin off from anecdotes about the wolf And, implicit in both, there is the journey, the pathology, of the misanthropic, solitary man who is telling us all this.The writing is thoroughly engaging often humorous, always so far as one can judge honest and diligent Rowlands, philosopher that he is, examines his [...]


    10. This book was difficult to get through As an animal behavior specialist and an anthrozoologist I found Mr Rowlands attempts as defining and bridging the gap between human and wolf riddled with problems While he clearly had a memorable and life changing relationship with his wolf, Brenin, he often describes his behavior toward Brenin in terms that are nothing short of indifferent to Brenin s perspectives and filled with the human need for power and control While I am certainly envious of Rowlands [...]

    12. Philosophy has a way of immolating the visceral ways in which we connect In this book, Mark Rowlands brings to life the interconnection between two beings, and traces their journey together with philosophically inspired food for thought Very much worth the read.


    13. Siendo directo y conciso, este es uno de los libros m s importantes que he le do Me sacudi de una manera que todav a no entiendo y que me tardare en entender De entrada no es un libro para todos, el autor hace un desd n constante sobre nuestra naturaleza de simio y a mucha gente no le gusta que hablen mal de su propia naturaleza, pero creo y siempre he cre do que la confrontaci n es la que saca algo de nosotros, que con el tiempo es lo que vale la pena Es un libro que te confronta, que te reta, [...]



    14. I was first attracted to this book by the name of the book and the picture on the front of the book The author suggests that the picture on the front might be an effort to mimic a classic painting entitled Lone Wolf This painting is of a wolf on a mountain looking down at the light shining in a domain below The longing of the outsider to come inside and visit Would this outsider ever stay Would the wolf be able to fit into the life of a philosopher The author of this book describes himself as a [...]


    15. Mark Rowlands, a professor of philosophy, writes both about the eleven or twelve years of his life, from the time he brought home a wolf cub whom he named Brenin until the latter s death During that time he also acquired two dogs Anna and Tess They lived in the USA, Great Britain, and France Rowlands adored the animals and I thoroughly enjoyed reading about their lives Rowlands also weaves his philosophical views into the story He writes about the nature of intelligence, about what distinguishe [...]

    17. Concordo com o que dizem muitas das cr ticas a este livro n o um livro de filosofia convencional Na maior parte do tempo, nem sequer temos muita dificuldade em seguir a narrativa ou a argumenta o uma leitura razoavelmente leve Consiste principalmente num relato de alguns epis dios que Mark Rowlands viveu com o seu lobo Brenin, intercalado com algumas reflex es de ordem social, biol gica e obviamente filos fica A quest o central como definir humano, como distinguir o Homem em rela o s restantes c [...]


    18. I enjoyed the memoir and the critique of the apes The chapter on deception was interesting Brenin was an amazing creature, and there were times that Rowlands had me wanting to be just like a wolf Rowlands definition on what ape really is The ape is the tendency to understand the world in instrumental terms the value of everything is a function of what it can do for the ape The ape is the tendency to see life as a process of gauging probabilities and computing possibilities, and using the results [...]


    19. When I was a freshman at Brown, I majored in philosophy When I was a sopho, I escaped from school to the Maine wilderness Philosophy was just so much yammering and wild speculation I never wanted to read it again When I moved back to civilization and returned to college, I made sure I selected courses that relied on data, not twisting words onto words with no proof I ended up getting a doctorate in Linguistics which actually had its origins in philosophy, but was data driven at Brown I bought th [...]


    20. Musings on what it means to be human and what it means to be a wolf, thoughts on the meaning of life, happiness and death, all presented in the context of the author s relationship with his wolf Quite a tearjerker.



    21. Con la possibile eccezione delle pi alte sfere della matematica pura o della fisica teorica, difficile immaginare qualcosa di pi inumano della filosofia Il culto della logica in tutta la sua fredda purezza cristallina, la determinazione a superare le vette brulle e ghiacciate della teoria e dell astrazione essere filosofo significa essere esistenzialmente sradicato Movente, prove, giustificazione, autorizzazione solo un animale davvero cattivo ha bisogno di questi concetti Pi l animale sgradevol [...]


    22. Ah, what a brilliant book It unpacks life in such surprisingly chilling, satisfying and frustrating ways that I swung between feeling furious with the writer and grateful for him almost all throughout the book If a book elicits emotions so far from each other, then it s arguably a great book Said that, there are some moments you kind of feel the scholarly arrogance of a philosopher who tries to draw a moral line for everyone, but these fleeting moments come and go The taste that stays with you a [...]


    23. Het overkomt me niet vaak of eigenlijk tot nu toe is het me nog nooit overkomen dat een filosofieboek me zo raakt Op pagina vier was het al raak Mark Rowlands, de schrijver, maar vooral ook eigenaar van Brenin, de wolf, is dan op weg naar de dierenarts om Brenin te laten inslapen Brenin ligt achterin de Jeep Brenin hoort niet te liggen, Brenin staat altijd in de auto en Mark hoopt, tegen beter weten in, dat Brenin nog een keer gaat staan Dan kan hij omkeren en naar huis gaan en is dit niet de la [...]


    24. The Philosopher and the Wolf is a profound and original book But I never would have found it if it hadn t been recommended to me Even after I ordered it, it sat on my shelf for over a year before I finally picked it up.I can understand why the back cover copy didn t grab my attention, because this is a rather difficult book to describe It s not quite an autobiography, because the author is often overshadowed by the wolf, and neither of them is the main character It s not quite philosophy althoug [...]


    25. Rowlands lays out early on the difficulties of writing the book, the time it took and a strangeness of memory that was involved Also, that he isn t sure how the writing came together, how issues, metaphors and ideas folded into each other across chapters, how Life rarely allows itself to be dealt with and put to bed It s actually Rowlands writing exercise and attempt to think about himself that I find the interesting aspect of the book.He is a successful professional philosopher, former boxer, [...]


    26. One of the biggest regrets of my college years was not devoting myself fully to a logic philosophy class I ultimately chose to audit because I was taking 21 hours and had freaked out after doing poorly on the first exam Undue focus on GPA, even though I had no grad school goals DUH No logic I had, thus, for decades, believed myself incapable of tackling the subject Enter, stage left, The Philosopher and the Wolf This book comes via recommendation from the kid running the wine store in Ashland in [...]


    27. The Philosopher and the Wolf Lessons From the Wild On Love, Death and Happiness by Mark Rowlands will open your mind and break your heart Losing a pet is always heart wrenching, but losing this wolf, Brenin, will move you.Rowlands writes of his relationship with Brenin, the wolf that he adopted as a pup and raised until his passing The relationship the two had was truly one of a kind and once in a lifetime Rowlands tells of what he learned from Brenin and how he was pushed to be the best he coul [...]


    28. Easily the best philosophy book I ve read in a long time Accessible to the general reader without compromising rigorous thinking Partly a memoir of Rowlands experience living with a wolf adopted as a cub in Alabama and then took with him to live in Ireland and France, Rowlands also reflects on what he learned from Brenin on, for example, the differences and similarities between wolves and primates like humans A serious look at how a man can co exist with a wolf that allows both to thrive Rowland [...]
