Abstract

This book is a clear and comprehensive introduction to environmental ethics, the importance of which, in current global circumstances, it is difficult to doubt. Uniquely among textbooks on this subject, it concentrates upon theories and movements which are, or claim to be, ecocentric (that is, based upon value as inhering in nature as a whole). It also addresses the post-secular, pluralist and political dimensions of ‘green’ ethics. The back cover includes endorsements from the philosophers John Gray (LSE) and Mary Midgley (Newcastle), the latter describing it as “a lively and intelligent book”.
