Beschreibung

Environmental ethicists have frequently criticized ancient Greek philosophy as anti-environmental for a view of philosophy that is counterproductive to environmental ethics and a view of the world that puts nature at the disposal of people. This provocative collection of original essays reexamines the views of nature and ecology found in the thought of Plato, Aristotle, the Stoics, and Plotinus. Recognizing that these thinkers were not confronted with the environmental degradation that threatens contemporary philosophers, the contributors to this book find that the Greeks nevertheless provide an excellent foundation for a sound theory of environmentalism.

Pressestimmen

Raises many questions which should engage and challenge anyone concerned with the environment. -- M. Eleanor Irwin Humanities ...a helpful introductory discussion of Greek philosophy aned environmentalism... the conclusions are both interesting and useful for those who teach environmental ethics courses or any philosophy course that seeks to apply the ancients to contemporary issues. Their assiduous attention produces a remarkably compelling, if complex, argument for the relevance of Greek philosophy to contemporary ethical concerns. -- Robert L. Grant, St. Ambrose University Religious Studies Review ... concise and absorbing ... -- Eric LaFerriere, John Abbott College Environmental Politics [Westra and Robinson] provide a an excellent analysis of the views of nature and ecology in the works of the ancient Greek philosophers, and they succeed in their purpose of showing these writings to modern enviornmentalism. -- William Stiebing Jr.
