Festschrift

FROM THE COVER:

In this volume, over 80 world-class scholars from more than 20 countries

select a short quotation taken from any of Jesper Hoffmeyer’s

texts and provide their scholarly commentary upon that passage –

whether in the form of an analytical explication, a critical disagreement

or a conceptual extension – that as they feel asks the questions that

need to be asked, proposes the ideas that need to be proposed, or

that draws out the implications that need to be so explicitly drawn out,

germane to the claims of the selected passage.


At once a celebration and a serious academic development of the

work of Jesper Hoffmeyer, this landmark volume marks the occasion

of his 70th birthday on February 21, 2012.
