Faking Nature: The Ethics of Environmental Restoration (Environmental Philosophies) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Robert Elliot offers a provocative insight into the ethical problems of environmental strategy. He explores the arguments surrounding the concept of ecological restoration and develops the groundwork laid by his highly acclaimed 1982 article, "Faking Nature," Ecological restoration is a crucial process in the modern world and is central to companies' environmental policy. Elliot considers whether areas restored after ecological destruction are less valuable than before the damage took place. "Faking Nature" observes the pros and cons of the argument and examines the role of humans in the natural world. This book is a timely analysis of the simultaneous destruction and restoration of the natural world and the ethics related to those processes, in an era of accelerated environmental damage and repair.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 161-167) and index.
