9780230222366: The Presence of Nature: A Study in Phenomenology and Environmental Philosophy

Are any nonhuman animals conscious? Why, if at all, should we strive to conserve natural environments? In what sense are we parts of nature? Simon James draws on a range of philosophical and literary sources to develop original answers to these and other questions, setting out a refreshingly new approach to environmental philosophy.

Review:

'James's philosophical exploration of the ecophenomenological landscape opens new vistas, helping us see a way through the deep thicket of ethical challenges that we denizens of the earth now face. This is an important and provocative book, and an adventure in thinking not to be missed.' - Iain Thomson, University of New Mexico
