Environmental pragmatism( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 2005 in English and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Environmental pragmatism is a new strategy in environmental thought: it argues that theoretical debates are hindering the ability of the environmental movement to forge agreement on basic policy imperatives. This new direction in environmental philosophy moves beyond theory, advocating a serious inquiry into the practical merits of moral pluralism. Environmental pragmatism, as a coherent philosophical position, connects the methodology of classical American pragmatist thought to the explanation, solution and discussion of real issues." "This concise, well-focused collection is the first comprehensive presentation of environmental pragmatism as a new philosophical approach to environmental thought and policy."--Jacket

Technology and the good life? by Eric Higgs( Book )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Technology and the Good Life?' uses a careful collective analysis of Albert Borgmann's controversial and influential ideas as a jumping-off point from which to address questions about the role and significance of technology in our lives. Contributors both sympathetic and critical examine Borgmann's work, especially his 'device paradigm'; apply his theories to new areas such as film, agriculture, design, and ecological restoration; and consider the place of his thought within philosophy and technology studies more generally

Environmental values by John O'Neill( Book )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We live in a world confronted by mounting environmental problems. We read of increasing global deforestation and desertification, loss of species diversity, pollution and global warming. In everyday life people mourn the loss of valued landscapes and urban spaces. Underlying these problems are conflicting priorities and values. Yet dominant approaches to policy making seem ill-equipped to capture the various ways in which the environment matters to us. Environmental Values introduces readers to these issues by presenting, and then challenging, two dominant approaches to environmental decision-making, one from environmental economics, the other from environmental philosophy. The authors present a sustained case for questioning the underlying ethical theories of both of these traditions. They defend a pluralistic alternative rooted in the rich everyday relations of humans to the environments they inhabit, providing a path for integrating human needs with environmental protection through an understanding of the narrative and history of particular places. The book examines the implications of this approach for policy issues such as biodiversity conservation and sustainability. The book is written in a clear and accessible style for an interdisciplinary audience. It will be ideal for student use in environmental courses in geography, economics, philosophy, politics and sociology. It will also be of wider interest to policy makers and the concerned general reader."--Page 4 of cover
Philosophy and geography II : the production of public space( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosophers and geographers have converged on the topic of public space, fascinated and in many ways alarmed by fundamental changes in the way post-industrial societies produce space for public use, and in the way citizens of these same societies perceive and constitute themselves as a public. This volume advances this inquiry, making extensive use of political and social theory, while drawing intimate connections between political principles, social processes, and the commonplaces of our everyday environments

Controlling technology : contemporary issues by William B Thompson( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Controlling Technology brings together widely conflicting views concerning the nature of modern technology as it relates to the quality of everyday life and to the larger problem of human survival on this planet. The thesis that technology has indeed become autonomous is contrasted with the position that, by its very nature, technology can only exist under human control. Thirty-four insightful essays are divided into eight parts, each with its own introduction summarizing the chapters and placing them in their appropriate contexts." "This excellent collection of essays will be of great value for students, professionals, and all those interested in technology, the human values it affects, and the social dimensions of its use, and will appeal to anyone who has every paused to consider the every-expanding role technology plays in modern society." "Included are works by renowned scholars Jacques Ellul, Lewis Mumford, Albert Borgmann, Langdon Winner, Thomas Hughes, Andrew Feenberg, Samuel Florman, Arnold Pacey, Hans Jonas, Dorothy Nelkin, and many others."--BOOK JACKET

Philosophy and design : from engineering to architecture by Peter Kroes( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume provides the reader with an integrated overview of state-of-the-art research in philosophy and ethics of design in engineering and architecture. It contains twenty-five essays that focus on engineering designing in its traditional sense, on designing in novel engineering domains, including ICT, genetics, and nanotechnology, designing of socio-technical systems, and on architectural and environmental designing. These essays are preceded by an introductory text structuring the field of philosophy and ethics of design in engineering and architecture as one in which a series of similar philosophical, societal, and ethical questions are asked. This volume enables the reader to overcome the traditional separation between engineering designing and architectural designing. The emerging discipline of designing socio-technical systems is shown to form an intermediate between engineering and architecture to which the philosophical and ethical analyses of both domains apply. This volume thus announces a challenging cross-fertilization between the philosophy and ethics of engineering and of architecture that will lay down the integrated ground works for the renewed interests in the importance of design in modern society
