Lisa Sideris proposes a new way of thinking about the natural world, an environmental ethic that incorporates the ideas of natural selection and values the processes rather than the products of nature.
This book offers a detailed, thoughtful exploration of alternative scientific and theological conceptions of the environment. -- Amy K. Wolfe Environment Readers of this journal should pay special attention to a book such as this. It is as clear a demonstration as exists of the import of scientific theorizing and the fusion between the culture of the sciences and that of the humanities. -- Michael P. Nelson, University of Idaho Environmental Conservation 31(3)2004 This critique ought to generate debate and responses...for the questions it asks are crucial to our common project. -- Anna L. Peterson Environmental Ethics Summer 2005 There is much to commend in this admirably clear and readable book. -- Michael S. Northcot Ecotheology 10/3 2005
