Editorial Reviews

Environmental Values
For fans and devotees of deep ecology, the book is essential, with its copious collection of relevant articles and Naess's classic but often evasive responses.
Environmental Ethics
These debates are thought-provoking, on occasion entertaining, and illustrate something of the development of Naess' thinking about ideas such as unity and self-realization.
