Most decision making in environmental policy today is based on the economic cost-benefit argument. Criticizing the shortcomings of the market paradigm, John Martin Gillroy proposes an alternative way to conceptualize and create environmental policy, one that allows for the protection of moral and ecological values in the face of economic demands.

Drawing on Kantian definitions of who we are as citizens, how we act collectively, and what the proper role of the state is, Gillroy develops a philosophical justification for incorporating non-market values into public decision making. His new paradigm for justice toward nature integrates the intrinsic value of humanity and nature into the law.

To test the feasibility of this new approach, Gillroy applies it to six cases: wilderness preservation, national wildlife refuges, not-in-my-backyard (NIMBY) siting dilemmas, comparative risk analysis, the Food and Drug Administration's risk regulation, and the National Environmental Policy Act. He also encourages others to adapt his framework to create alternative policy models from existing philosophies.

This book offers new insights, models, and methods for policymakers and analysts and for scholars in philosophy, political theory, law, and environmental studies.

About the Author:

John Martin Gillroy is John D. MacArthur Professor of Environmental Policy and Law at Bucknell University, where he also is director of the Environmental Studies Program. His previous books include Environmental Risk, Environmental Values and Political Choices: Beyond Efficiency Tradeoffs in Policy Analysis(Westview, 1993) and The Moral Dimensions of Public Policy Choice: Beyond the Market Paradigm(University of Pittsburgh Press, 1992).

Review:

"Gillroy offers a rich discussion that should make a weighty impact on the public policy community."―David Braybrooke, Centennial Commission Chair in the Liberal Arts, The University of Texas at Austin

"Presents a powerful challenge to the current marginalization of environmental ethics in the public policy arena . . . Justice and Nature will help move environmental philosophy from the classroom to its rightful place at the forefront of public debate."―Robert V. Percival, Director, Environmental Law Program, University of Maryland School of Law

"Gillroy is masterful in his use of Kant's moral and political philosophy to develop the Justice from Autonomy paradigm. This book is a must for all Kant scholars and for anyone interested in the relevance of philosophy to environmental law and policy."―Robert Paul Churchill, Chair, Department of Philosophy and Director, Peace Studies Program, The George Washington University

"Authors, too numerous to mention, have called for a new, non-market-based, normative framework for analyzing environmental problems. John Martin Gillroy has actually gone beyond this common admonition to provide one. Ethicists, policy analysts, and decision makers should take this Kantian attempt very seriously."―Bryan Norton, Georgia Institute of Technology
