    Life’s potentiality as multispecies gift.João Aldeia - 2024 - Ethics in Science and Environmental Politics 24:15-30.
    Contemporary political ecological problems reduce possibilities for future human and non-human life. These problems are the result of modern capitalist humans’ attempt to break away from multispecies bonds and turn non-humans into resources to be appropriated. These bonds are crucial for the continued generation of life, which can only result from intergenerational and interspecies shared time, effort, and energy. By expanding the works of Mauss’ intellectual heirs and Levinas towards multispecies interactions, this gift of life can be better understood. Life (...)

    Deep ecology and the philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas: the importance of moving from biocentric responsibility to environmental justice.Pehuén Barzola-Elizagaray & Ofelia Agoglia - 2024 - Ethics in Science and Environmental Politics 24:31-45.
    Environmental theory and practice can benefit greatly from Emmanuel Levinas’ non-ontological philosophy of the Other in order to address the current global environmental crisis. From this viewpoint, this article focuses on 2 major positions within deep ecology. We discuss the significance of transitioning from one of them, which represents biocentric responsibility, to the other, which seeks to achieve environmental justice by challenging the hegemony of institutionalised environmentalism. In Levinasian terms, this is represented by moving from the anarchic realm of ethics (...)

    Public beliefs and perceptions related to ecofascism.Zoe Gareiou, Sofia Giannarou, Efi Drimili, Leonidas Vatikiotis & Efthimios Zervas - 2024 - Ethics in Science and Environmental Politics 24:47-59.
    The concept of ecofascism describes the distortion of ecology for the purpose of gaining greater and wider audience, popularising ideologies and fulfilling xenophobic and nationalistic goals by regimes such as the far-right agenda and the radical ecological groups. This study investigates the issue of ecofascism in Europe, using the example of Greece, by examining the views of the citizens of Greece on the links between the political parties and ecology and environment. A survey of 600 people was conducted in Greece, (...)

    Beyond fatalism: Gaia, entropy, and the autonomy of anthropogenic life on Earth.Alejandro Merlo & Xabier E. Barandiaran - 2024 - Ethics in Science and Environmental Politics 24:61-75.
    The current disruption of ecosystems and climate systems can be likened to an increase in entropy within our planet. This concept is often linked to the second law of thermodynamics, which predicts a necessary rise in entropy resulting from all material and energy-related processes, including the intricate organisation of living systems. Consequently, discussions surrounding the ongoing crisis commonly carry an underlying sense of fatalism when referencing thermodynamic principles. In this study, we explore how the understanding of life has been harmonized (...)
