Environmental Ethics and Philosophy

'Sustainability' and 'sustainable development' have become key phrases of the politics of the environment. They are at the centre of much environmental discourse and indeed of the series of which this collection is a part. This major volume brings together a number of recent papers that address the ethical and political assumptions that underlie different uses of those concepts. Part I examines equality and justice. Part II focuses on justice, equality and future generations. Part III deals with the moral considerability of the non-human world and Part IV looks at environmental justice. Part V examines economic valuation and Part VI discusses sustainability. Part VII covers sustainability and nature. This volume will be an invaluable source of reference for scholars of environmental economics, environmental political theory, environmental ethics and geography, and all those concerned with the philosophical foundations of sustainability.
