About this book

Human activities are responsible for nearly all species loss. Any concern expressed tends to be over potentially valuable resources - information for scientists, or compounds that could be used in new medicines - that are lost when a species disappears. This work examines the extinction crisis from both scientific and philosophical perspectives. It argues that such a utilitarian perspective is not only shortsighted but morally bankrupt. The book sets forth a sound and original argument about the philosophical and ethical dimensions of species conservation.
