Abstract

This article contributes to a resolution of the longstanding and often fruitless debate, within environmental philosophy as well as more widely, between ‘realist’ and ‘constructionist’ approaches. It also intervenes in two other debates, namely between monists and pluralists (both metaphysical and ethical) and between advocates of value as anthropocentric and as ecocentric. It argues that pluralism, properly understood, is necessarily ecocentric, and conversely that ecocentrism is pluralist.
