Numinous Seditions

Interiority and Climate Change

With Numinous Seditions, celebrated poet and essayist Tim Lilburn investigates aspects of an interiority appropriate to a time and world irrevocably altered by climate change. How will we be under these new conditions? What inner dispositions might sustain and help us bear the new sorrows of the climate crisis? The book draws from retrieved elements of the West's almost forgotten contemplative tradition in its Platonic, Islamic, Christian, and Zoharic forms. It also explores ideas from modern philosophers Jan Zwicky, Gillian Rose, Dorothy Day and Simone Weil, and from contemporary poetry by Don Domanski, Philip Kevin Paul, Anne Szumigalski and Roberto Harrison. Listening, noticing, reading, stretching our imaginations are all part of an interior stance that can help with the difficult tasks of forming deep relationships with the land, with Indigenous peoples, and with pedagogy itself. Numinous Seditions is for scholars and readers interested in poetry, environmental philosophy, and in the possibility of a contemplative politics.
