Brief, inviting, and provocative, this book is a perfect introduction to the burgeoning field of environmental ethics. It animates the basic questions, tells compelling stories, and offers a range of philosophical responses as complementary—not antagonistic—exploratory strategies vital to this growing topic. The book is built around five individually authored chapters, each a representative contribution by a major author in the field. Each chapter covers a central topic in environmental ethics in a somewhat different style. An epilogue offers both a bibliographical guide to these topics and many related issues and a practical guide to environmental action.
An Invitation to Environmental Philosophy is an ideal text for courses in environmental ethics and environmental philosophy and an intriguing and rich supplement to a general ethics course, as well as a bridge into the academic literature in environmental philosophy.
