About this book

Through a series of multidisciplinary readings, Environmental Ethics: The Big Questions contextualizes environmental ethics within the history of Western intellectual tradition and traces the development of theory since the 1970s. It provides a historical and thematic introduction to the field of environmental ethics and features a selection of brief original essays on the importance of the study of environmental ethics by leaders in the field.

The book contextualizes environmental ethics within the history of the Western intellectual tradition by exploring anthropocentric (human-centered) and nonanthropocentric precedents and further offers an interdisciplinary approach to the field by featuring seminal work from eminent philosophers, biologists, ecologists, historians, economists, sociologists, anthropologists, nature writers, business writers, and others. It is designed to be used with a web-site which contains a continuously updated archive of case studies
