Offers an account of environmental values which recognizes the centrality of human relations with and responses to the environments in which we live, while rejecting attempts to reduce such relations and responses to preferences that can be captured by monetary values. Topics include: human welfare and the natural world, consequentialist approaches to environmental choice, environmental equity and justice, value pluralism, intrinsic value, the role of history and narrative in environmental valuation, biodiversity and sustainability.
Environmental Values is an excellent book, easy to read, and relatively short. -- Richard Haynes, Ecological Restoration, Vol. 26, No. 1 Environmental Values covers an extraordinary amount of ground with clarity and precision. It distils key ideas from leading thinkers in environmental philosophy into one tightly argued volume. It offers both careful, accurate summaries of existing positions and an original, stuimulating position of its own. I highly recommend it. Clare Palmer, Geographical Journal
