About this book

Examines the nature-politics relationship in the writings of two of its most pivotal theorists, Aristotle and Thomas Hobbes, and of contemporay environmentalist thinkers. Human thought and action, argues Meyer, should be considered neither superior or subservient to the nonhuman natural world, but interdependent with it.

Media reviews

Political Nature is a significant contribution to the field. Not enough has been made elsewhere of the major traditions in political theory in the context of contemporary environmental politics, and this book goes some way to addressing that problem. --Andrew Dobson, Keele University, author of Justice and the Environment "Both provocative and judicious, Meyer's book makes a most welcome and valuable contribution to current debates about environmentalist political theory and practice." --Terence Ball, Arizona State University, author of Reappraising Political Theory
