“David Rothenberg shows us in this brief and enjoyable book that Naess’s thought and influence range far beyond ecological philosophy. Naess’s contributions to our understanding of the roots and resolution of the environment crisis are of primary interest here.” Environmental Politics

"Is It Painful to Think? is an important contribution to the deep ecological literature, appropriate for specialists as well as readers seeking an introduction. The book offers something to readers who identify themselves as deep ecologists, to those interested in the roots of deep ecology, and to those seeking an introduction to deep ecology."
