Overview

The inaugural collection in an exciting new exchange between philosophers and geographers, this volume provides interdisciplinary approaches to the environment as space, place, and idea. Never before have philosophers and geographers approached each other's subjects in such a strong spirit of mutual understanding. The result is a concrete exploration of the human-nature relationship that embraces strong normative approaches to environmental problems.

Editorial Reviews

Choice
The approach taken and the quality of this volume augur well for the series' future and for fruitful collaboration between the two disciplines.
Ecumene
A useful collection of examples of the situatedness of moral communities in place and space. As such, it will be of interest to a variety of geographers, philosophers, and others interested in the particularities of environmental ethics.
— Iain Hay, Flinders University, South Australia
Progress In Human Geography
A consistently well written and generally accessible spectrum of theoretical and applied essays. . . . The authors of Philosophy and Geography I have quite understandably only begun to elucidate this rich terrain, yet for that we are grateful.
— Pat Proctor, University of California, Santa Barbara
Environmental Values
The editors have aimed for papers which will appeal to a wide audience. They have succeeded, I believe, and are to be commended for the high standards of expression and clarity achieved in all the contributions to the volume.
— Jacqui Burgess, department of geography, University College London
Martin W. Lewis
This is an essential work for scholars interested in the intersection of geography and environmental ethics. The various essays are informed and provocative, grounding the subtleties and ambiguities of environmental philosophy to the specificities of space and place. The variety of perspective offered here should help refine the field and broaden the terrain for debate within it.
Timothy W. Luke
This outstanding collection of important essays breaks much new ground . . . these studies deftly illustrate the real promise of sophisticated philosophy investigations of geographical concepts, discourse, and practices.
