"... simply the best 'field-guide' to environmental philosophy anywhere. Dale Jamieson has assembled an insightful set of chapters - the topics are well chosen, the writing is crisp, and the thinking is compelling. The volume is also historically informed, theoretically rich, multicultural, and practical - all especially appreciated strengths."
William S. Lynn The Hastings Center, Garrison, NY
"Featuring both first-rank scholars and superb new scholarship, this volume reflects well the many ways in which environmental philosophy not only pervades, but is also touched by, ancient and modern concerns."
Paul Waldau, Tufts University
A Companion to Environmental Philosophy is a pioneering work in the burgeoning field of environmental philosophy. This ground-breaking volume contains thirty-six original articles exemplifying the rich diversity of scholarship in this field.
The volume begins by exploring enviomental philosophy and the cultural traditions from which it springs. After discussing its roots, and then looking at contemporary environmental ethics, environmental philosophy is brought into conversation with other fields and disciplines such as literature, economics, ecology, and law. The last section focuses on the environmental problems that stimulate current debates.
This Companion is an indispensable reference book for students and researchers in environmental philosophy. It will be enjoyed by anyone who is interested in environmental affairs.
