Example text

17 Evans thinks Schweitzer believes in a noumenal, supernatural deity, which lies beneath and behind the natural world. I disagree, for I interpret the infinite Will to Live as immanent in the world. I concur with Evans, however, that Schweitzer’s devotion to the creative aspects of life, in abstraction from its destructive aspects, is at odds with a more ecologically informed affirmation of nature in its entirety. At the same time, in contrast with Evans, it is more accurate to say that Schweitzer never fully accepts killing, not death, whether by humans or in nature.
