Summary
No one looking ahead at the middle of the last century could have foreseen the extent and the importance of the ensuing environmental crises. Now, more than a decade into the next century, no one can ignore it. This work offers clear, powerful, and oftentimes moving thoughts from one of the first and most respected philosophers to write on the environment. The author, an early and leading pioneer in studying the moral relationship between humans and the Earth, surveys the full spectrum of approaches in the field of environmental ethics. This book, however, is not simply a judicious overview. Instead, it offers critical assessments of contemporary academic accounts and draws on a lifetime of research and experience to suggest an outlook for the future. As a result, this focused, forward-looking analysis teaches its readers to be responsible global citizens, and residents of their landscape, helping ensure that the future we have will be the one we wish for. -- From p.
