Animals, Nature and Albert Schweitzer

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


This unique and highly-acclaimed small volume shows - primarily through Dr. Schweitzer's own words - how his philosophy of "reverence for life" developed, from childhood, as his long life unfolded.
It demonstrates how the philosopher-physician-musician carried out his philosophy at his African hospital, in Europe and the U.S.A and how he inspired the animal protection and environmental awakening.
It describes his bond with individual animals and how he coped with the paradox of the "will-to-live" vs. "the will-to-live."
His memorable words, the sensitive commentary and the appealing photographs combine to present forcefully and gracefully Dr. Schweitzer's guidance to all persons troubled by disrespect of the natural word and all that dwell therein.
This book, which was originally published in 1982, has gone into eight printings.
