9780820331713: The Wilderness Debate Rages On: Continuing the Great New Wilderness Debate

Ten years ago, The Great New Wilderness Debate began a cross-disciplinary conversation about the varied constructions of "wilderness" and the controversies that surround them. The Wilderness Debate Rages On will reinvigorate that conversation and usher in a second decade of debate.

Like its predecessor, the book gathers both critiques and defenses of the idea of wilderness from a wide variety of perspectives and voices. The Wilderness Debate Rages On includes the best explorations of the concept of the concept of wilderness from the past decade, underappreciated essays from the early twentieth century that offer an alternative vision of the concept and importance of wilderness, and writings meant to clarify or help us rethink the concept of wilderness. Narrative writers such as Wendell Berry, Scott Russell Sanders, Marilynne Robinson, Kathleen Dean Moore, and Lynn Maria Laitala are also given a voice in order to show how the wilderness debate is expanding outside the academy.

The writers represented in the anthology include ecologists, environmental philosophers, conservation biologists, cultural geographers, and environmental activists. The book begins with little-known papers by early twentieth-century ecologists advocating the preservation of natural areas for scientific study, not, as did Thoreau, Muir, and the early Leopold, for purposes of outdoor recreation. The editors argue that had these writers influenced the eventual development of federal wilderness policy, our national wilderness system would better serve contemporary conservation priorities for representative ecosystems and biodiversity.

About the Author:

Michael P. Nelson is an associate professor of environmental ethics and philosophy at Michigan State University. He is affiliated with the Lyman Briggs College, the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife, and the philosophy department. J. Baird Callicott is a professor of philosophy at the University of North Texas. Nelson and Callicott are coeditors of The Great New Wilderness Debate and coauthors of American Indian Environmental Ethics: An Ojibwa Case Study.

Review:

The Wilderness Debate clearly rages on, and this is a fine and engaging representation of it as well as a constructive contribution to it on many levels. Strong and wide-ranging essays detail and deepen a real rollicking philosophical debate with serious stakes and thus will make this collection stand out and stand alone.

(Anthony Weston author of A 21st Century Ethical Toolbox)

This new collection, like the first one, will be essential reading for anyone working in the new and burgeoning field of religion and ecology.

(Religious Studies Review)
