By Doug Erlandson TOP 50 REVIEWER on January 14, 2014
Format: Paperback
"Environmental Ethics" consists of material written by Michael Boylan as well as anthologized writings by a number of environmental ethicists. The first chapter is a description of the concept of a worldview and its application to environmental ethics. This is fairly difficult material for the philosophical novice and is not always easy to understand. (I might mention that I taught philosophy for more than 25 years and was not always clear on exactly what Boylan was saying in this section.) There follows a very brief discussion of four different ethical theories––intuitionism, virtue ethics, utilitarianism, and deontology. Each one is treated with such brevity as to be of limited usefulness.

Of more use are the writings of various authors that comprise much of the remainder of the book. These writings are divided into sections on the land ethic, ecofeminism, anthropocentric and biocentric justifications for environmentalism, animal rights, biodiversity, and sustainable development, among other issues. Boylan has provided a fairly well-balanced set of articles representing a variety of perspectives on these issues. As is the case with many anthologies, the anthologized material varies in terms of readability. Some of it is very easy to understand; some of it is not.
