Product Description:

The essays in this collection offer a philosophical diagnoses of the current ecological crisis.

From the Back Cover:

This significant collection of outstanding recent essays, some specifically written for this volume, offers readers contemporary insights in the rapidly growing field of environmental philosophy. This anthology was the first to expand the scope of environmental philosophy beyond environmental ethics by including sections on deep ecology, ecofeminism, and social and political ecology. This anthology is also unique because each section is introduced and edited by a leading internationally-known expert in the field.

Among the new and revised elements of Environmental Philosophy, 3/e, are:

  • New selections on animal rights and environmental ethics that emphasize the differences and commonalties between these important areas
  • Updated introduction to ecofeminism and new essays—including one by Vandana Shiva—that address how environmental issues affect women and children in the Third World.
  • Updated introduction to political ecology and new essays on ecofeminism and social ecology, and on the environmentalism of traditional American conservative thought

Environmental Philosophy, 3/e, combines outstanding expert introductions and current scholarship which explore environmental issues from diverse perspectives, and continues to make a timely contribution to the ongoing dialogue on environmentalism.
