Description

Most of the serious thinking I have done over the past twenty years has been done while running, says philosophy professor Mark Rowlands, who has run for most of his life. And for him, running and philosophizing, are inextricably connected.

In Running with the Pack, he reveals the most significant runs of his life from the entire day he spent running as a boy in Wales, to the runs along French beaches and up Irish mountains with his beloved wolf, Brenin, and through Florida swamps with his husky-mix, Nina. Intertwined with this honest, passionate and witty memoir are the fascinating meditations that those runs triggered, from mortality, midlife, and the meaning of life.

A highly original and moving book that will make the philosophically inclined want to run, and those who love running become intoxicated by the beauty of philosophy.
