Playing on the several possible meanings of "Seeing Through God", Llewelyn explores the technology of looking at things and examines strategies developed by the Western sciences for seeing and observing. Surprisingly, Llewelyn finds that the so-called tough-minded practices of the physical sciences are very much at home with the so-called tender-minded practices of Eastern religions. Instead of opposing East and West, Llewelyn thinks that blending these spheres leads to a better understanding of aesthetic experience and imagination. In this blending, Llewelyn presents a phenomenological description of the imagination and the ethical and religious dimensions of the act of imagining. "Seeing Through God" touches on themes of salvation, the preservation of the environment, and the role of God our temptation to dishonour the earth. Posed at the intersection of continental philosophy and environmentalism, this unique book presents Llewelyn as one of the leading interpreters of the environmental phenomenology more
