Gardening is a thoughtful as well as practical pastime: planning ahead, deciding what will make a "good" garden, and wondering at the beauty of flowers. Growers, by their nature, are in fact already philosophers: existentialists who try to work by their own rules in a garden; stoics who put up with slug damage; and quantum scientists who witness incredible processes going on in plant cells. Here Kate Collyns uses gardening to explore a range of philosophical ideas and schools of thought, from science, evolution, and aesthetics to politics, economics, and ethics.
