Respect for Nature: A Theory of Environmental Ethics (Studies in Moral, Political, & Legal Philosophy) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Respect for Nature defends a biocentric theory of environmental ethics.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 315-323) and index.
