About this book

The prevailing view of nature has begun to move away from a traditionally Western humans-apart-from-nature attitude towards one that sees humans as part of nature. These changes are described and analysed here, with Marietta arguing that this represents a philosophical shift to a new holistic model of environmental ethics.
