“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Philosophies of Art and Beauty

...from Plato to Heidegger. Still my favorite textbook after all these years. Edited by Albert Hofstadter. Real, sizable chunks. Chicago Press. Just got my box fresh desk copy.

This was actually the very first philosophy book I ever bought, at a used bookstore in Stillwater MN.
