For the health of the land : previously unpublished essays and other writings by Aldo Leopold( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aldo Leopold's classic work A Sand County Almanac is widely regarded as one of the most influential conservation books of all time. In it, Leopold set forth an eloquent plea for the development of a "land ethic"--A belief that people have a responsibility to treat the soils, waters, plants, and animals that collectively comprise "the land" in ways that ensure their well-being."--BOOK JACKET. "For the Health of the Land is a new collection of rare and previously unpublished essays by Leopold that builds on that vision of ethical land use. It develops the important concept of "land health" - by which Leopold meant the capacity for self-renewal in nature - and the practical measures land-owners can take to sustain it."--Jacket

Encyclopedia of environmental ethics and philosophy( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 635 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Publisher's website: The field of environmental ethics is a new but now well-established sub-discipline of philosophy. Emerging in the mid-1970s, the field coalesced with the inaugural volume of the journal Environmental Ethics in 1979 and developed rapidly. By the turn of the century, most colleges and universities offered courses, if not major programs of study, in this important discipline. The Encyclopedia of Environmental Ethics and Philosophy addresses the needs of upper high school students, undergraduate researchers, teachers and professors, as well as general readers by examining the philosophical and ethical issues underlying contemporary and historical environmental issues, policies, and debates. More than 300 peer-reviewed articles cover concepts, institutions, topics, events and people, including global warming, animal rights, environmental movements, alternative energy, green chemistry, industrial ecology, and eco-sabotage. Encyclopedia of Environmental Ethics and Philosophy joins the suite of other Macmillan applied ethics titles: Encyclopedia of Bioethics and the Encyclopedia of Science, Technology, and Ethics. Additional features include 200 photographs and illustrations, thematic outline, annotated bibliography, and a comprehensive index

10 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A sequel to Callicott's pioneering work, In Defense of the Land Ethic, Beyond the Land Ethic engages a wide spectrum of topics central to the field, including the troubled relationship of environmental philosophy to current mainstream academic philosophy; the relationship of recent developments in evolutionary and ecological sciences to the Leopold land ethic long championed by the author; the perennial debates in environmental ethics about the ontological status of intrinsic value and the necessity of moral pluralism; the metaphysical implications of ecology and the New Physics as manifest in agriculture, medicine, and industrial technology; and the philosophical dimensions of conservation biology and "clinical ecology.""--Jacket
Earth's insights : a survey of ecological ethics from the Mediterranean basin to the Australian outback by J. Baird Callicott( Book )

22 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and Japanese and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The environmental crisis is global in scope, yet contemporary environmental ethics is centered predominantly in Western philosophy and religion. Earth's Insights widens the scope of environmental ethics to include the ecological teachings embedded in non-Western worldviews. J. Baird Callicott ranges broadly, exploring the sacred texts of Islam, Hinduism, Jainism, Taoism, Confucianism, and Zen Buddhism, as well as the oral traditions of Polynesia, North and South America, and Australia. He also documents the attempts of various peoples to put their environmental ethics into practice. Finally, he wrestles with a question of vital importance to all people sharing the fate of this small planet: How can the world's many and diverse environmental philosophies be brought together in a complementary and consistent whole?
The great new wilderness debate : an expansive collection of writings defining wilderness, from John Muir to Gary Snyder( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An expansive collection of writings defining wilderness, from John Muir to Gary Snyder "The Great New Wilderness Debate" is an expansive, wide-ranging collection that addresses the pivotal environmental issues of the modern era. This eclectic volume on the varied constructions of "wilderness" reveals the recent controversies that surround those conceptions, and the gulf between those who argue for wilderness "preservation" and those who argue for "wise use". J. Baird Callicott and Michael P. Nelson have selected thirty-nine essays that provide historical context, range broadly across the issues, and set forth the positions of the debate. Beginning with such well-known authors as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, John Muir, and Aldo Leopold, the collection moves forward to the contemporary debate and presents seminal works by a number of the most distinguished scholars in environmental history and environmental philosophy. The Great New Wilderness Debate also includes essays by conservation biologists, cultural geographers, environmental activists, and contemporary writers on the environment

Earth summit ethics : toward a reconstructive postmodern philosophy of environmental education( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the eve of the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Fernando J.R. da Rocha challenged environmental philosophers to suggest and develop effective ways in which universities might engender ecological literacy and environmental ethics. The result was a pre-conference held in Porto Alegre, Brazil, whose aim was to put the summit in philosophical perspective, influence its outcome, and chart a new course, linking environment and ethics through university education. This book is an outgrowth of the Porto Alegre conference, and the international environmental philosophers and educators represented here inaugurate a constructive dialogue that will continue well into the twenty-first century. Among the contributors to the volume are environmental philosophers Andrew Brennan, J. Baird Callicott, Fernando J.R. da Rocha, and Holmes Ralston, III, and education theorists Peter Madsen and John Lemons. In addition, the book introduces English-language readers to the work of French philosopher Catherine Larrere, Spanish philosopher Nicholas Sosa, and Brazil's radical former Secretary for the Environment and deep ecologist Jose Lutzenberger

American Indian environmental ethics : an Ojibwa case study by J. Baird Callicott( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"J. Baud Callicott and Michael P. Nelson offer an engaging study of environmental ethics with particular emphasis on an ethics supported by the Ojibwa cultural worldview. Connecting environmental theory with diverse stories from Ojibwa Indians, Callicott and Nelson reveal the meaning and power of cultural worldviews as they inform ethical principles and practices, as they show that competing worldviews demonstrate the many ways "of cognitively organizing human experience." The authors begin with a concise treatment of environmental ethics, cultural worldviews, and the problem of cultural relativism, and integrate and evaluate rarely seen narratives of Ojibwa Indians on their relationship to the environment"--Back cover
Environmental philosophy in Asian traditions of thought by James McRae( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leading scholars draw from the Indian, Chinese, and Japanese traditions of thought to provide a normative framework that can address the environmental challenges being faced in the twenty-first century. Hindu, Buddhist, Confucian, and Daoist approaches are considered along with those of Zen, Japanese Confucianism, and the contemporary philosophy of the Kyoto School. An investigation of the environmental philosophy in these Asian traditions not only challenges Western assumptions, but also provides and understanding of Asian philosophy, religion, and culture that informs contemporary environmental law and policy." -- Back cover

Linking ecology and ethics for a changing world : values, philosophy, and action by Ricardo Rozzi( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ecological sciences have informed environmental ethics from its inception as a scholarly pursuit in the 1970s so much so that we now have ecological ethics, Deep Ecology, and ecofeminism. Throughout the 20th century, however, most ecologists remained enthralled by the myth that science is value-free. Closer study of science by philosophers reveals that metaphors are inescapable and cognitively indispensable to science, but that metaphors are value-laden. As we confront the enormous challenges of the 21st century the prospect of a 6th mass extinction, acidifying oceans, rising sea level, and global warming ecologists can no longer remain aloof from public discourse about what actions to take to address these problems. And that means that 21st century ecologists understand that right action is guided by ethics. However, integration of ethical ideas into academic curricula and ecologists research agendas is still meager."--Page 4 of cover
Green fire : Aldo Leopold and a land ethic for our time( Visual )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Green Fire ... examines Leopold's thinking, renewing his idea of a land ethic for a population facing 21st century ecological challenges. Leopold's biographer, conservation biologist Dr. Curt Meine, serves as the film's on-screen guide. Green Fire describes the formation of Leopold's idea, exploring how it changed one man and later permeated through all arenas of conservation. The film draws on Leopold's life and experiences to provide context and validity, then explores the deep impact of his thinking on conservation projects around the world today. Through these examples, the film challenges viewers to contemplate their own relationship with the land community"
