Editorial Reviews

Review

"Environmental Values is an excellent book, easy to read, and relatively short." -- Richard Haynes, Ecological Restoration, Vol. 26, No. 1

Environmental Values covers an extraordinary amount of ground with clarity and precision. It distils key ideas from leading thinkers in environmental philosophy into one tightly argued volume. It offers both careful, accurate summaries of existing positions and an original, stuimulating position of its own. I highly recommend it. Clare Palmer, Geographical Journal

Instead of simply applying the positions of classical moral philosophers (e.g. Kant, Bentham) to environmental matters, the authors first show the limitations of such an approach as well as cost/benefit analysis. They do so in favor of a more pragmatic approach that takes *place* and *history* into account. So, for example, it will be a catastrophe to villages for their village to be inundated by a hydroelectric dam -- even if the population is transported to a 'new, improved' village. At the same time, the authors don't romanticize enormously difficult choices that must be made: all their examples are drawn from real environmental quandaries for which they offer no rule-based solution. After two chapters on biodiversity and sustainability, the authors conclude hopefully that there genuine conflicts among incommensurable values can best be made through free, unforced, deliberative means. The distortions caused by great power balances worry them, but perhaps not enough. I would recommend this book highly as an excellent introduction to the complexities of value conflicts concerning the environment.

This is the best overview of environmental ethics that I have seen so far. Excellent coverage with minimum of scientific mumbo jumbo. AND at a very good price ONLINE DOWNLOAD.

So, top marks to Amazon for their perspicacity in picking up this title for their KINDLE range.

This book definitely embodies a mature, sophisticated perspective on the current field of environmental philosophy, and an important book to be used in teaching contemporary environmental ethics. This book signifies a break from the "old" discussions about environmental ethics (such as those spurred by Holmes Ralston III), progressing to a new stage where environmental philosophy can (and hopefully will) appeal to common sense morality and significantly influence environmental policy formation.

This is a must-read for anyone seriously interested in environmental philosophy.

A good anthology of the title subject. Can be a bit thick at times, though. But, that's philosophers for you.
