Additional Information

Bringing together ecology, evolutionary moral psychology, and environmental ethics, J. Baird Callicott counters the narrative of blame and despair that prevails in contemporary discussions of climate ethics and offers a fresh, more optimistic approach. Whereas other environmental ethicists limit themselves to what Callicott calls Rational Individualism in discussing the problem of climate change only to conclude that, essentially, there is little hope that anything will be done in the face of its "perfect moral storm" (in Stephen Gardiner's words), Callicott refuses to accept this view. Instead, he encourages us to look to the Earth itself, and consider the crisis on grander spatial and temporal scales, as we have failed to in the past. Callicott supports this theory by exploring and enhancing Aldo Leopold's faint sketch of an Earth ethic in "Some Fundamentals of Conservation in the Southwest," a seldom-studied text from the early days of environmental ethics that was written in 1923 but not published until 1979 after the environmental movement gathered strength.

J. Baird Callicott is one of the founders of environmental ethics, having taught the world's first course on the subject. He is also the leading interpreter of Aldo Leopold's land ethic, which is one of the most essential normative paradigms in environmental philosophy, and a founder of comparative environmental philosophy, which takes into account both Eastern and Western perspectives on environmental ethics and aesthetics. This book represents the most mature version of Callicott's philosophy, which expands his defense of Leopold's land ethic to a new "earth ethic" that is larger in scope and more dynamic in application. As always, Callicott builds his normative framework upon a strong environmental science foundation. This book is clearly written and features a coherent, systematic exposition of Callicott's environmental philosophy that will appeal to undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers alike. I plan to use this book the next time I teach Environmental... Read more
