Samenvatting

Significantly revised in this third edition, Environmental Ethics: What Really Matters, What Really Works examines morality from an environmental perspective. Featuring accessible selections--from classic articles to examples of cutting-edge original research--it addresses both theory and practice. Asking what really matters, the first section of the book explores the abstract ideas of human value and value in nature. The second section turns to the question of what really works--what it would take to solve our real-world environmental problems. Moving beyond the hype, it presents authoritative essays on applying environmental ethics to the issues that matter right now. The selections present philosophical, biological, and socially scientific approaches to the major issues. Environmental Ethics also features first-hand descriptions from people who have actually been involved in wildlife and conservation initiatives.

Recensie(s)

Environmental Ethics is the highest quality textbook/collection for foundational environmental ethics courses available. It has all of the foundational views/essays that are core to the discipline, while also offering a good breadth of topical coverage on issues relevant to anyone living on planet earth! --Lauren Hartzell Nichols, University of Washington This text does not stop at the philosophical; it applies these theories, meaning that readers will feel empowered to intervene and act upon environmental problems. As such, it is a site where theory meets practice. --Stephanie Rutherford, Trent University Environmental Ethics balances theory, problem, and policy exceedingly well. For a first course in environmental ethics, where students come from a wide range of backgrounds and disciplinary orientations, this is crucial. --Kenneth Shockley, University at Buffalo, The State University of New York The section on ecofeminism is one of the strongest I've seen in an introductory textbook. --Brad Wilburn, Chadron State College
