Environmental philosophy is one of the exciting new fields of philosophy to emerge in the last forty years. Understanding Environmental Philosophy presents a comprehensive, critical analysis of contemporary philosophical approaches to current ecological concerns. Key ideas are explained, placed in their broader cultural, religious, historical, political and philosophical context, and their environmental policy implications are outlined. Central ideas and concepts about environmental value, individual wellbeing, ecological holism, and the metaphysics of nature set the stage for a discussion of how to establish moral rules and priorities and whether it is possible to transcend human-centred views of the world. The book includes an annotated guide to further reading, questions for discussion and revision, and boxed studies highlighting key concepts and theoretical material. A clear and accessible introduction to this most dynamic of subjects, Understanding Environmental Philosophy will be invaluable for a wide range of readers.
