    Abstract: 本論文中的變形代表的是形式、結構、內容以及心理上的變化。在環地球的架構下,變形的發生表現在各種層次之上,以時間而言,演化的過程就是變形在時間中的呈現。以空間而言,變形代表著空間的內涵。本論文中的五個章節旨在討論各種變形之間的交叉連結。以下是各個章節的梗概:
    《龜島》一書匯集史奈德在太平洋東西兩端所獲得的哲學經驗,《龜島》是史奈德再度定居於內華達希爾拉(Sierra Nevada)山麓之後的反思。史奈德用當地的植物名(Kitkitdizze)替建造的房舍命名,該房舍具體呈現他在橫跨太平洋後悟得之體驗。藉由回溯東方哲學,史奈德勾勒出東西方文化的輪廓的重疊之處,並親身體現了跨文化融合。
    Metamorphoses in this dissertation stand for changes in form, structure, substance, and mentality. In the planetary system, metamorphoses function on various levels and take place with time and space. Time can be shown through the process of metamorphoses in the form of evolution. The content of space is revealed through nature, which is wired for metamorphoses. The five chapters in this dissertation are correlated by multitudinous metamorphoses.
    Leslie Marmon Silko’s Gardens in the Dunes tells of the routes of Indigo’s travels to transatlantic gardens. The travels facilitate Indigo’s connection to the gardens’ rhizomatic roots, which ultimately lead her to sense deeper into the home gardens and fertilize the homeland. In her nomadic existence, Indigo travels to a battery of gardens, but she is constantly en route to the gardens in the dunes. The sand dunes represent a center of intensity that navigates Indigo’s homecoming.
    Ursula K. Le Guin’s A Wizard of Earthsea narrates Ged’s rites of passage in his becoming of a true wizard. While developing into a full-fledged wizard, Ged undergoes an internal transformation by first fleeing and then embracing his dark self. In his voyages both on land and sea, Ged comes to realize the internal work of Earthsea that is maintained by the dynamic equilibrium.
    Turtle Island encapsulates Gary Snyder’s transpacific encounter that cross-pollinates the East and the West. The book reflects his re-immersion and reinhabitation in the Sierra foothills. The house he named Kitkitdizze is a landmark of his transition and proof of his trans-Pacific encounter. Backtracking to the East, Gary Snyder puts his life into the practice of intercultural marriage, which delineates the contours of Eastern and Western cultural landscape and where the two converge.
    Hayao Miyazaki’s Princess Mononoke employs double articulation and speaks on behalf of nature through animals. Through the speaking animals, double articulation blends animality into humanity. This integration of human and animal voices facilitates our recognition that human and animal races share the same origins. Double articulation serves as a reminder that animality is not foreign to human consciousness.
    All Over Creation narrates the Fullers’ metamorphoses from large-scale potato cultivation to a small seeds operation. However, concerning the diversity of plants, the small seeds business turns out to contain more possibilities to produce life than the previous big potato farm. The Fullers’ seeds operation hoards immense capability to preserve and disseminate a great collection of seeds.
