It is fascinating to listen in behind the scenes as philosophers try to figure out new ways to be relevant in the debate over the environment. I hope these nascent efforts expand -- the recalibration of the rightful human role in the natural world is one of the great practical challenges of the new century, and philosophers could and should play an important role.(Bill McKibben, author of Enough: Staying Human in an Engineered Age)
If you thought that environmental philosophy had lost sight of environmental practice, think again. Anyone who has ever despaired at bringing activists and theorists into beneficial contact will find plenty of succor and sound advice in these pages.(Andrew Dobson, Open University)
This balanced and brilliant collection bridges environmental philosophy and environmental practice to the betterment of both.(Mark Sagoff, Institute for Philosophy and Public Policy, University of Maryland)
