Review

".whereas much prior philosophizing about ecology has been either environmental fluff or the academic rationalization of predetermined and platitudinous endpoints (e.g., wanton destruction of nature is unethical), there appears now to be the real possibility of a philosophy of ecology." (reprinted from The Quarterly Review of Biology, June 2012)--BookInspections.com, May 26, 2013

"The present volume brings together in one place the recent works of many thinkers, including those such as Jay Odenbaugh and Gregory Mikkelson, professional philosophers who have made understanding and interpreting ecology their primary focus (and not just ecology in general, but specific problems in ecological theory). Thus, whereas much prior philosophizing about ecology has been either environmental fluff or the academic rationalization of predetermined and platitudinous endpoints (e.g., wanton destruction of nature is unethical), there appears now to be the real possibility of a philosophy of ecology.. [T]the essays by Christopher Eliot (The Legend of Order and Chaos: Communities and Early Community Ecology), James Justus (A Case Study in Concept Determination: Ecological Diversity), and Sahotra Sarkar (Habitat Reconstruction: Moving Beyond Historical Fidelity) are landmarks in the clarification of the philosophical problems that are throughout ecology."--The Quarterly Review of Biology, June 2012, page 141-2
