Moral pluralism and the course of environmental ethics

Environmental Ethics 10 (2):139-154 (1988)
Environmental ethics has reached a certain level of maturity; further significant advances require reexamining its status within the larger realm of moral philosophy.

Selecting the proper course requires as the most immediate mission exploring the formal requirements of an ethical system.

In particular, how much independence can an environmental ethic (or ethics) aim to have?
