"Poiesis means "making", and we make pies as well as poems..."

Martin Versfeld was professor of philosophy at the University of Cape Town and one of Africa's eminent writers and thinkers. He wrote widely, with wisdom and lucidity, on philosophy, theology and ecology. 

In Pots and Poetry and other essays we find a distillation of his thoughts on man's place in the world and the world's place in man, synthesising Eastern and Western world views. In essays ranging from investigations into the quality of life and the similarities between Plato and Confucius to a defence of the bawdy, Versfeld found nothing too insignificant for his interest - in this original mind rocks and pots held an interest equal to that of the great questions of life.


Very Good (VG): I may show some small signs of wear - but no tears - on either binding or paper.
