Flower Philosophy

Juan Ferret (2009), The Power Of Flowers: The Philosophy Of Organism Of The Maya, TRANSFORMATIVE PHILOSOPHY AFTER JOHN H. HADDOX: ESSAYS HONORING 50 YEARS OF MEXICAN, AMERICAN, AND SOCIAL THOUGHT, Ed. Carlos Alberto Sanchez and Jules Simon. Edwin Mellen Press. http://works.bepress.com/juan_ferret/6/

"Flowers are the epitomes of what constitute an organism, and, thus, humans must grasp their dynamic essences. Treated this way, flowers are the most visible and necessary of actual entities. Their connections with the earth, sun, humans, and water are what form them and, in turn, inform those in contact with them. The power of flowers comes from their actual and potential interactions with others in their environments, not from their constitutions as isolated objects.
