The first anthology to highlight the problems of environmental justice and sustainable development, Reflecting on Nature provides a multicultural perspective on questions of environmental concern, featuring contributions from feminist and minority scholars and scholars from developing countries. Selections examine immediate global needs, addressing some of the most crucial problems we now face: biodiversity loss, the meaning and significance of wilderness, population and overconsumption, and the human use of other animals. Spanning centuries of philosophical, naturalist, and environmental reflection, readings include the work of Aristotle, Locke, Darwin, and Thoreau, as well as that of contemporary, mainstream figures like Bernard Williams, Thomas Hill, Jr., and Jonathan Glover. Works by Val Plumwood, Bill Devall, Murray Bookchin, and John Dryzek comprise a radical ecology section. Featuring insightful section introductions by the editors, this comprehensive and timely collection of philosophical and environmental writing will inform, enlighten, and encourage debate.

Review:

"The first anthology to highlight the problems of environmental justice and sustainable development, [this book] provides a multicultural perspective on questions of environmental concern, featuring contributions from feminist and minority scholars and scholars from developing countries." --Bulletin of Science, Technology, and Society

"What is distinctively valuable about this collection is its breadth, both in the number of issues it touches upon and on the number of points of view solicited....Would be a suitable text for survey or introductory courses in environmental philosophy." --Ethics

"From the points of view of Pure Ethics, Biology and Politics, this is clearly one of the most satisfying selections of readings on the environment."--William J. Donlan, Salem State College

"Excellent collection of the major influential works. Could be used historically or topically."--Manuel M. Davenport, Texas AandM University

"Generally a fine collection....The inclusion of feminist and Third World views makes it quite valuable."--Roger S. Gottlieb, Worcester Polytechnic Institute

"An excellent addition to the several recently published environmental philosophy anthologies. An added strength of this volume are the sections on contemporary controversies."--Bron Taylor, University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh

"The range of texts selected makes this an indispensable reader for my environmental ethics students. Especially valuable are the sections on 'Sustainable Development as International Justice' and 'Contemporary Issues and Controversies,' which include Third World and indigenous perspectives."--Reyes Gareia, Fort Lewis College

"I believe your [reader] stands out as the text for a philosophical course which seeks genuinely to reflect upon the environmental dimensions of ethics, not simply to muse or to argue about it. It is a genuinely philosophical approach, leading the student to see the problem in philosophical context. I had looked forward to using it."--Erazim Kohak, Boston University
