“What I like most about this book is its varied approaches to the issue of environmental concern. There is a genuine awareness in the book that welds such disparate views together into a coherent, readable text.” John Grim, Bucknell University
Ecological Prospects: Scientific, Religious, and Aesthetic Perspectivesby Christopher Key Chapple
Ecological Prospects addresses pressing issues that will shape ecological awareness and activism into the next century. From a variety of perspectives, the book explores topics such as how ecological insight can serve as a management model for appropriate economic development, the possible categories that can be used to determine land use priorities, working models for environmental activism, potential paradigms for spiritually attuned environmentalism, and the role of aesthetic appreciation in the development of one’s sensitivity to the environment.
