He discusses the contribution of gardening and different garden-related goals to "the strong life." And he distinguishes the numerous types of meanings that gardens could have, from their illustration of nature to their religious value. A Philosophy of Gardens will open up this topic to scholars and students of aesthetics, ethics, and cultural and environmental experiences, and to an individual with a reflective curiosity in issues horticultural.
