Description

This collection gathers classic, influential, and important papers in environmental philosophy from the late 1960s and early 1970s (when academic environmental philosophy began to coalesce) to the present. The volumes explore environmental ethics, epistemological, metaphysical, and comparative worldview questions raised by environmental concerns. The set also represents a genuinely global and international focus.

The set includes a full index and new introductions by the editors.

Contents

Volume 1: Environmental Philosophy: Values and Ethics The first volume explores the major concern of environmental philosophy: the intrinsic value of nature, and the proper foundations for non-anthropocentric environmental ethics.

Volume 2: Environmental Philosophy: Society and Politics This volume includes papers which examine politically charged strains of environmental philosophy such as eco-feminism, social ecology, and deep ecology.

Volume 3: Environmental Philosophy: Economics and Policy A perennial theme in environmental philosophy is a critique of economism and, often from environmental pragmatists, a call for more environmental policy orientation in environmental philosophy. This volume collects the essential papers on these themes.

Volume 4: Environmental Philosophy: History and Culture Volume four explores environmental philosophy's engagement with the legacy of deep cognitive structures, such as human/nature and mind/body dualisms in the Western worldview, and alternatives to these cognitive structures found in various non-Western worldviews.
