Editorial Reviews


"[R]eaders with interests in environmental science and conservation biology will find insight and mature, thoughful discussion well founded in the social and life sciences as well as the humanities." Choice

"...inspiring and thought-provoking as well as wide-ranging...This book would be excellent for an undergraduate or graduate student discussion of public policy and philosophy, and as background reading on the complexities of sustainability." Edward J. Valauskas, Manager, Chicago Botanic Garden

"This is an excellent book ... [Norton] provide a useful service by consolidating his considerable past contributions to the field of environmental philosophy under one cover." The Quarterly Review of Biology

"This is a grand, yet warmly human book, well worth having on the shelf as food for thought and as a reference on a range of topics that truly matter." Environmental Ethics

Book Description

This book examines from a multidisciplinary viewpoint the question of what we mean--what we should mean--by setting sustainability as a goal for environmental management. The author explores ways to break down the disciplinary barriers to communication and deliberation about environment policy, and to integrate science and evaluations into a more comprehensive environmental policy. The book will appeal to students and professionals in the fields of environmental policy and ethics, conservation biology, philosophy.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bryan Norton is a well known academic and writer of environmental philosophy. This collection brings together the development of his thoughts on sustainability creating a bridge from pragamatism, and the thought of Aldo Leopold forward to modern environmental and public policy issues. It is a must for anyone interested in environmental management or philosophy.
