    Defending the Defenders: Environmental Protectors, Climate Change and Human Rights.Trish Glazebrook & Emmanuela Opoku - 2018 - Ethics and the Environment 23 (2):83.
    Global Witness, an international non-governmental organization founded in 1993 "to end environmental and human rights abuses driven by the exploitation of natural resources and corruption in the global political and economic system", working in collaboration with the British newspaper The Guardian, recorded almost a thousand murders of land and environment defenders between 2010 and 2016. Since at least the beginning of 2016, an average of roughly four environmental defenders a week have been murdered. One hundred and seventeen were killed in (...)

    Anthropocentrism, Logocentrism, and Neural Networks: Victoria Davion Prefigures Some Important Lessons From Nature.Ronnie Hawkins - 2018 - Ethics and the Environment 23 (2):37.
    Victoria Davion worked courageously at that growing confluence where feminism and ecological consciousness come together, just as she consistently provided support for others who found themselves drawn by the same set of concerns, values and aspirations. And sometimes one may have a sense where lines of inquiry are heading, well before detailed investigations draw them out into the light of day. I get that feeling from reading her essay "Anthropocentrism, Artificial Intelligence, and Moral Network Theory: An Ecofeminist Perspective". Davion identifies (...)

    Ecofeminist Teaching and Mentoring: Vicky Davion's Legacy.Cecilia Herles - 2018 - Ethics and the Environment 23 (2):3.
    While grappling with the loss of Victoria Davion, I have contemplated the meaning of legacy in the academic field of philosophy. A legacy can be measured in the ripple effect of one's actions. As Vicky's former student and graduate assistant, I am grieving, yet I continue to be uplifted by her mentorship and the lessons she taught me. The scope of Vicky Davion's knowledge extends well beyond her written publications and her work as founding editor of this journal, Ethics & (...)

    What's in a Name? In Defense of Ecofeminism : Or “Why Ecofeminism Need Not Be Ecofeminine—But So What If It Is?”.Chaone Mallory - 2018 - Ethics and the Environment 23 (2):11.
    As I am composing this piece for this special issue on the life, work, and impact on the field of ecofeminism of pathfinding philosopher Victoria Davion, as well as her incredible impact on the people whose lives she touched, I am gazing out my window in the Eastern Sierra bioregion of California. Normally the view is of the jagged, rocky profile of the Sierra Nevada mountains in sharp relief against a cerulean sky, with Mt. Whitney, which at approximately 14,800 feet (...)

    Introduction.Piers H. G. Stephens - 2018 - Ethics and the Environment 23 (2):1.
    This special issue of Ethics and the Environment is dedicated to the philosophical contributions of our founding editor, Victoria Davion, who launched the journal in 1996 and edited it until shortly before her death in November 2017. Vicky was a pioneering figure in ecofeminist philosophy, as well as being both the first woman to become a full professor and the first to be chair of the Philosophy Department here at the University of Georgia. Naturally we have endeavored to give her (...)

    Animal Welfare and Environmental Ethics: It's Complicated.Ian J. Campbell - 2018 - Ethics and the Environment 23 (1):49.
    Consider Dave, an altruistic software developer whose monthly charitable contributions include Oxfam, Friends of Animals, and the Sierra Club. Dave's contributions to Oxfam suggest that he values human life and welfare. His support for Friends of Animals, moreover, indicates that he does not restrict his welfare concerns to humans—Dave is no anthropocentrist. Finally, his contributions to the Sierra Club show that he values nature and wants to see it preserved, untrammeled by human beings. At first glance, Dave's support for Friends (...)

    Mourning Nature: Hope at the Heart of Ecological Grief and Loss Ed. By Ashlee Cunsolo and Karen Landman.Alan E. Stewart - 2018 - Ethics and the Environment 23 (1):79-86.
    If C.S. Lewis' A Grief Observed can be considered an account of a lost human relationship, then Cunsolo and Landman's Mourning Nature forms a posthuman, but nonetheless personal, examination of the losses of relationships with plants, animals, and even entire ecosystems—an ecological grief observed. In this regard, one of the motivations for this book was Cunsolo's interviews with Inuit residents who experienced profound sadness and despair at the changes in the landscape brought by climate change. Beyond this, each of the (...)

    Replacement and Irreversibility: The Problem with Ecological Restoration as Moral Repair.Eric Katz - 2018 - Ethics and the Environment 23 (1):17.
    Should the process of ecological restoration be considered a type of moral reparation? Defenders of the restoration process have recently proposed an affirmative answer to this question. The idea itself is not new. Paul Taylor considered the possibility of reparations to the natural world in his seminal work in environmental ethics, Respect for Nature, although Taylor was not directly considering the process of ecological restoration as the means to secure the reparations. In a recent issue of this journal, Ben Almassi (...)

    Ecological Crisis and the Problem of How to Inhabit a Norm.Simon Lumsden - 2018 - Ethics and the Environment 23 (1):29.
    Dale Jamieson's recent work, Reason in a Dark Time: Why the Struggle Against Climate Change Failed and What it Means for our Future, explores the reasons why attempts to develop a global response to anthropogenic climate change have been unsuccessful.1 One contribution to this failure is the inability of moral philosophy to redefine the actions and behaviors of individuals that are currently considered relatively unremarkable practices of western life as immoral. Arguments attempting to establish grounds for moral judgment that would (...)

    Debating Climate Ethics by Stephen M. Gardiner and David A. Weisbach.Joshua D. McBee - 2018 - Ethics and the Environment 23 (1):71-77.
    Stephen Gardiner and David Weisbach's recent Debating Climate Ethics takes up an urgent and important question: is ethics relevant to climate policy? Or rather, the book takes up several, closely related versions of that question we do well to distinguish clearly: 1 Are ethical considerations relevant to climate policy? 2 Do ethical theories philosophers defend have implications regarding climate policy? 3 Does climate ethics provide policy analysts any useful guidance? Or, in other words, should climate policy analysts pay any attention (...)

    Loving an Unfamiliar World: Dementia, Mental Illness, and Climate Change.Katie McShane - 2018 - Ethics and the Environment 23 (1):1.
    As the pace of climate change accelerates, the world around us is becoming increasingly inhospitable, unpredictable, and unfamiliar. Our future looks as though it will be one of even more drastic environmental change. It is worth thinking about what it will be like to live in such a world: how will creatures like us, with psychologies that are perhaps better suited to more predictability, cope? How might we need to change in order to adjust to a rapidly changing environment? One (...)
