Profile: Vernon Pratt (University of Central Lancashire, Lancaster University)
  1. Vernon Pratt (2000). Environment and Philosophy. Routledge.
    Environment and Philosophy provides an accessible introduction to the radical challenges that environmentalism pose to concepts that have become almost second nature in the modern world. Written in an accessible way for those without a background in philosophy, this text examines ways of thinking about ourselves, nature and our relationship with nature.

  5. Vernon Pratt (1982). Aristotle and the Essence of Natural History. History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences 4 (2):203 - 223.
    It has been claimed that in a single line of development the science of taxonomy stretches from Aristotle to the present day and that the Aristotelian 'essence' lies at the heart of much later thought about grouping. I try to establish some basic features of Aristotle's conception of 'essence', and then consider in more detail the conception of essence that entered into 18th century thought about classification, with a view to establishing discontinuities. 18th century thought, I note, has two kinds (...)

  12. Vernon Pratt (1975). A Biological Approach to Sociological Functionalism. Inquiry 18 (4):371 – 389.
    The rationale for the common rejection of classical societal functionalism is that it entails treating a society as an intelligent purposer, capable of directing its own internal organization in furtherance of survival. But a more acceptable alternative account of the origins of a society's functional organization is conceivable: the individual unconsciously recognizes the needs of his group and directs his behaviour so that they are met.
