Links together the concepts of the ecological self and an environmental ethos--an ethics of place--as a way to re-engage the moral concerns of radical ecological theories. Best understood as an ethical critique of modernity, radical ecological theory challenges and extends the problematic moral framework now used within the disciplines of philosophy and the social sciences. Remaining true to the spirit of radical ecology, Smith engages with current debates about the status of moral values and theories, the social construction of nature, deep ecology, and non-violent direct action in a manner that is broadly interdisciplinary, original, and compelling.About the Author:
Mick Smith is Lecturer in the Division of Sociology at the University of Abertay Dundee, Scotland.
