Ethics and the Environment 2 (2):103 - 120 (1997)
We examine the relation between environmental ethics and environmental law, focusing on the New Zealand Resource Management Act of 1991. This is a comprehensive and philosophically grounded statute that was the first of its kind in the world. We analyze key concepts in the law, including sustainability, resources, stewardship, natural character, and intrinsic law, which we try to resolve from a "weak anthropocentric" position.
