Semi-relevant text April 22 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This text was required reading for a graduate level environmental ethics course. While I felt that some of the essays were relevant, more than a few came across as lengthy diatribes filled with dense self-important babbling. In some cases concepts were introduced that were never fully explained, and then were critiqued by other authors who also did not feel a pressing need to define said concept(s). The lack of an index for this anthology made many such essays particularly difficult to get through, as it felt that the editors were in some ways just as confused as the readers when bringing together important concepts for useful review. Future editions could benefit from a lengthier introduction to each subject chapter, with indexed references, put together by the editors, and would in all probability then make this a superior text in the field. Updating many of the essays to reflect current schools of thought would also be useful. All in all, three stars for format.

A well-balanced anthology Feb. 20 2013
By Doug Erlandson - Published on
Format: Paperback
"Environmental Ethics: Readings in Theory and Application" is about the best anthology dealing specifically with environmental ethics that I have come across. Now in its Sixth Edition, "Environmental Ethics" includes an excellent balance of classical (e.g., Kant and J.S. Mill) and contemporary writings in the field. Moreover, the articles anthologized represent a range of viewpoints, with no one perspective dominating. A proper balance has been struck.

Topics include animal rights, pollution, population and consumption, ecological ethics, climate change, econfeminism, sustainability, and others. Each major section is preceded by a brief but helpful introduction setting out the major issues and giving a quick synopsis of the various articles that follow. There is more than enough material in this anthology for a semester-length course devoted specifically to environmental ethics.

Like most texts, the price tag is far more than it should be. But this drawback does not detract from the quality of the book.
Book about things, and stuff, and words, and numbers, and punctuation. Heavy stuff. June 22 2015

damn b, this made my head think, a lot. A great selection of pieces, some essential readings within, totally worth the buy bro. After reading this book you will be saying "I am the walrus." The only thing this book needs is more cowbell. Can land, water, and air have inherent value? I don't know but this book may say something about it. The only way to find out is to read it.

Great book. This choice as the class text was a good one. One of the most enlightening books I have read in awhile. Assortment of essays from numerous authors about environmental ethics. Differing viewpoints from authors on subjects provide many classical and new theories to the most pressing environmental issues of today and the future. Book was delivered in better condition than I expected.
