Description:

Reflecting on Nature introduces readers to the fields of environmental philosophy and environmental ethics, offering both classic and current readings that focus on key themes - images of nature, ethics, justice, animals, food, climate, biodiversity, aesthetics and wilderness. It helpsstudents to focus on fundamental issues within environmental philosophy and offers succinct readings that explore the central tensions and problems within environmental philosophy. The thematic organization, paired with discussions of current environmental problems, encourages students to apply their course reading and discussion to real-life problems rather than purely theoretical topics. This second edition conserves the most important readings and insights of the firstedition, while updating the issues and readings in light of changes both in the intellectual climate and in the pattern of environmental concern. New to this edition are sections on animals, justice, food, aesthetics, and climate change. Discussion questions, introductions, and recommended readingsenrich its use as an undergraduate anthology. Reflecting on Nature is the perfect reader for those interested in how philosophy can help us to understand and respond to environmental issues.
