Overview

"Here are fifteen essays written from the late 1960s to the mid-1980s by a pioneering environmental ethicist. The collection is divided into four sections: ethics and nature, values in nature, environmental philosophy in practice, and nature in experience. . . . Rolston's writing often evokes the best of American philosophy of nature. He writes with flair and grace. The book is good reading because it is good literature. Rolston raises unsettling questions [and] a formidable challenge. The agenda is well set." — F. E. Bernard, Ethics

"An important book that deserves a wide student readership . . . . Highly appropriate for ecology . . . and philosophy courses, as well as courses dealing with environmental law and policy-making." — J. C. Kricher, Choice 

Powerful essays which focus on ethics and nature, values in nature, environmental philosophy in practice, and nature in experience.
