Ii. nature may be of no value: A reply to Elliot

Inquiry 26 (2):233 – 235 (1983)
Abstract
Robert Elliot (Inquiry, Vol. 25 [1982], No. 1) argues that the naturalness of a ?natural environment? is itself of value, and that a restored or ?artificial? environment, consequently, lacks a value that the original possessed. Against this it is argued that (i) Elliot has illicitly concluded that x has a valuable property F from the fact that someone values x because it is F, and (ii) it is unnecessary to seek environmental values the existence of which are independent of the emotional responses of rational agents
