Product Description

Review

" Environmental Ethics ranks with the best of recent collections and will make an excellent course text. The skillful blend of classic and contemporary essays generates a clear sense both of the ongoing debates and the developing agenda of the subject, and demonstrates its growing importance for social decision–making." Alan Holland, Lancaster University, UK <!––end––> "This anthology will get environmental ethics unstuck. It contains all the landmarks of the first great period of environmental ethics, but also fresh and provocative reflections that will steer the enterprise out of its present self–absorption and in socially trenchant and politically fruitful directions." Albert Borgmann, University of Montana “ Environmental Ethics is comprehensive, assembles both classics and new initiatives, and is organized so as to throw into clear relief the focal issues and critical debates that define the field. It is an invaluable guide for navigating the rapidly changing terrain that is environmental ethics, and one that pushes the field forward on a number of important fronts." Alison Wylie, Washington University, St. Louis

From the Back Cover

Environmental Ethics: An Anthology brings together seminal writings on the central questions in environmental ethics. The book comprises both classic and cutting–edge essays that have formed contemporary environmental ethics, ranging from the welfare of animals versus ecosystems to theories of the intrinsic value of nature. The volume also discusses alternatives to traditional environmental ethics, including deep ecology, ecofeminism, and environmental pragmatism; and presents important works on particular environmental issues, such as wilderness preservation and global climate change. Additional editorial material provides a helpful overview of the field and points to new directions and controversies shaping the relationship between humans and nature into the future. Specifically designed for course use, Environmental Ethics: An Anthology provides an excellent introduction, at once accessible and thorough, to this increasingly important and urgent area of study.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for undergraduate study 16 Feb 2012
By Peachi
Format:Paperback
Having purchased this book as the core text for my third year module in Environmental Ethics at undergraduate university level, I can honestly say that this book is brilliant. I have purchased a lot of books in the course of my higher education and this one is definitely one of the most helpful. It contains a wide variety of articles ranging from Aldo Leopold's historic 'The Land Ethic' to Peter Singers famous 'Not For Humans Only'. It also covers subjects from deep ecology to ethics of non-human animals, from environmental sustainability to the intrinsic value of nature. It features most of the 'major players' in environmental ethics and serves its purpose well of providing a useful and diverse anthology of information to the reader. Also, the summary/introduction to each new section is also very helpful in providing an overview of what's coming up in the subsequent pages.

It really is an invaluable text that will be an asset to any undergraduate student, or even to the person who wishes to become better acquainted with some of the more academic aspects to environmental ethics. Very accessible, easy to understand and a pleasure to read, it'll make an excellent addition to any bookshelf!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a Must-Have!!! 24 Aug 2008
By Keith A. Bustos - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a compilation of numerous important and influential articles published in the field of environmental ethics. To fully understand and contribute to the field of environmental ethics, (I think) one should read most (if not all) of the articles published in this anthology. Furthermore, if you're teaching a course on environmental philosophy, this anthology will save you precious time and energy since it contains many of the paradigmatic works within the field.

There were some pages that weren't aligned properly. All material was still legible, however the discrepancy was a bit bothersome.

1.0 out of 5 stars Confusing 24 Jun 2012
By S. Hunter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book was assigned for a philosophy class and as previous people have mentioned is excessively wordy. Instead of getting to the point and giving details and more information, it seems the authors were dancing around the main points in effort to make this book and this topic more difficult than it needs to be. It may in effort turn people off towards this very important topic.

1.0 out of 5 stars Environment Textbook Experience 18 Dec 2011
By Student - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The authors were excessively wordy and used terminology that only a PhD could understand.
The information was repetitive and contradictory.
