Wendell Berry as he writes on the home as a place of productivity, not merely entertainment and consumption. And he is wonderful on the ways material objects and our use of them carry historical, geological, and natural depths, which plastics and synthetics cannot possess.
The philosopher Mark Johnson, who writes on the mind as extension and outgrowth of the lived body, on the aesthetics of human reason, and on meaning as embedded in the flesh of the world. See The Body in the Mind and The Meaning of the Body.
The philosopher, poet, and activist David Abram, who speaks on the ecological moorings of thought and its implications for human survival. Very creative and expansive thinker when it comes to seeing mind in and through nature. Great storyteller, too. His Spell of the Sensuous is wonderful.
