By Simon Hailwood
Many environmental scientists, students and activists characterise our scenario as one among alienation from nature, yet this thought can simply appear meaningless or irrational. during this publication, Simon Hailwood seriously analyses the assumption of alienation from nature and argues that it may be an invaluable concept whilst understood pluralistically. He distinguishes various senses of alienation from nature referring to assorted environmental contexts and matters, and attracts upon quite a number philosophical and environmental principles and issues together with pragmatism, eco-phenomenology, weather swap, ecological justice, Marxism and important thought. His novel standpoint exhibits that varied environmental matters - either anthropocentric either anthropocentric and nonanthropocentric - can dovetail, instead of compete with, one another, and that our alienation from nature don't need to be whatever to be regretted or conquer. His ebook will curiosity a vast readership in environmental philosophy and ethics, political philosophy, geography and environmental experiences.
