9780130431219: American Indian Environmental Ethics: An Ojibwa Case Study

In an effort to articulate the environmental ethic of the Ojibwa, this book focuses on the Ojibwa narrative, myths, legends, stories and rituals. An examination of these sources demonstrates the worldview of the group, their social inclusiveness and their ethical commitments. Introductory essays and interpretive essays accompany the narratives themselves to offer a theory of environmental ethics, an overview of the field of environmental ethics and place the Ojibwa within this contemporary debate. The volume examines environmental ethics, a cultural worldview and culture, language and cultural relativism, the Ojibwa narratives, key cognitive elements of an Ojibwa worldview, Ojibwa environmental ethics, and controversy about American Indian environmental ethics. For individuals looking for a systematic treatment of the environmental attitudes and practices of American Indians.

From the Back Cover:

J. Baud Callicott and Michael P. Nelson offer an engaging study of environmental ethics with particular emphasis on an ethics supported by the Ojibwa cultural worldview. Connecting environmental theory with diverse stories from Ojibwa Indians, Callicott and Nelson reveal the meaning and power of cultural worldviews as they inform ethical principles and practices, as they show that competing worldviews demonstrate the many ways "of cognitively organizing human experience." The authors begin with a concise treatment of environmental ethics, cultural worldviews, and the problem of cultural relativism, and integrate and evaluate rarely seen narratives of Ojibwa Indians on their relationship to the environment.

American Indian Environmental Ethics is the seventh book in the series, Basic Ethics in Action, edited by Michael Boylan. This series is a major new undertaking by Prentice Hall covering several areas in applied ethics, including business ethics, environmental ethics, medical ethics, and social and political ethics.

About the Author:

J. Baird Callicott is Professor of Philosophy at -the University of North Texas, and an eminent author in the field of environmental ethics.

Michael P. Nelson is Professor of Philosophy and Natural Resources at the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point.
