This work challenges environmentalists to think more deeply and creatively about agriculture. The author takes four `worldviews' which tackle agricultural ethics according to different philosophical priorities: productionism, stewardship, economics, and holism. He examines current issues such as the use of pesticides and biotechnology from these ethical perspectives.
