Consequentialism and Environmental Ethics, Hardback Book


This volume works to connect issues in environmental ethics with the best work in contemporary normative theory.

Environmental issues challenge contemporary ethical theorists to account for topics that traditional ethical theories do not address to any significant extent.

This book articulates and evaluates consequentialist responses to that challenge.

Contributors provide a thorough and well-rounded analysis of the benefits and limitations of the consequentialist perspective in addressing environmental issues.

In particular, the contributors use consequentialist theory to address central questions in environmental ethics, such as questions about what kinds of things have value; about decision-making in light of the long-term, intergenerational nature of environmental issues; and about the role that a state's being natural should play in ethical deliberation.
