  1. The Feminist Plant: Changing Relations with the Water Lily.Prudence Gibson & Monica Gagliano - 2017 - Ethics and the Environment 22 (2):125.
    A feminist approach to plant life involves the dismantling of conventional constructs and habits that do not treat everyone and everything fairly and equally. This is relevant to the expression of the water lily because it does not have any unequal or unfair habits in its natural behaviour. It has been hailed by humans as a symbol of female fertility, as a bride-like figure. This paper seeks to retrieve the water lily from its historical cultural role and re-present and re-express (...)

    How Human-Animal Relations Are Realized: From Respective Realities to Merging Minds.Uta Maria Jürgens - 2017 - Ethics and the Environment 22 (2):25.
    The ecological crisis is arriving, coinciding with crises of many human systems, e.g. the financial and economic systems. Centuries of mismanagement and abuse of natural and human "resources" bring drought and floods, snow storms and suffocating heat, political and psychic collapses. Calls for rethinking and restoring our relationship to the non-human world, to one another, and to ourselves are now ubiquitous.These calls have emerged from various disciplines—psychology, philosophy, sociology, biology, education, law...

  3. A Zen-Flavored Feminist Environmental Selfhood and its Contemporary Implications.Yee-Man Lam - 2017 - Ethics and the Environment 22 (2):99.
    Gender inequality, poverty, racial discrimination, and ecological catastrophes are some of the problems we are currently facing. While these problems may seem to be separate and independent, most of the oppressions could be attributed to the domination of capitalist patriarchy. Ecofeminism sees an intersection behind these oppressions—most of the oppressions could be attributed to the domination of capitalist patriarchy. With a prime focus on environmental issues, ecofeminism suggests that the attitudes and mechanisms behind the mastery over women and nature are (...)

    The Import of Heidegger's Philosophy Into Environmental Ethics: A Review.Kalpita Bhar Paul - 2017 - Ethics and the Environment 22 (2):79.
    Although Heidegger never explicitly discusses any form of ethic, he is far from being an unfamiliar name in the literature of environmental ethics. As Heidegger himself strongly refutes ethics as a discipline, naturally incorporating his philosophy into any kind of ethics inevitably induces an enduring debate. To precisely address this, Nancy presents the threefold difficulties that arise while discussing Heidegger's take on ethics. Nancy argues, if morality is being conceptualized as "a body of principles and aims for conduct, fixed by (...)

    The Darwinian Nihilist Critique of Environmental Ethics.Brian F. Snyder - 2017 - Ethics and the Environment 22 (2):59.
    Prescriptive ethics are based on the idea that humans can develop meaningful standards about right and wrong behavior. Environmental ethics aims to be prescriptive rather than simply descriptive and to define the correct behavior in the relationship between humans and the environment. That is, environmental ethics assumes that there is a "right" and a "wrong" way for humans to interact with the environment and sets about the task of discovering this right and wrong. Environmental ethicists have developed both subjective and (...)

    Three Forms of Political Ecology.Darcy Tetreault - 2017 - Ethics and the Environment 22 (2):1.
    What is political ecology? Since the 1970s, the term has been used to refer to multiple and diverse critical approaches to studying the nexus between human societies and the natural environment. To be sure, definitions abound, but they are not entirely consistent and they have tended to become broader and somewhat more ambiguous with time.1 As we will see, this tendency reflects efforts to accommodate the development of two epistemologically distinct forms of research in the field: a materialist one associated (...)

    Ecological Restorations as Practices of Moral Repair.Ben Almassi - 2017 - Ethics and the Environment 22 (1):19-40.
    The value of ecological restoration has seen considerable criticism and defense in environmental ethics over the past thirty years. Proponents stress the human and ecological benefits of restoration projects at their best; critics characterize restoration as impossible, arbitrary, domination or delusional. As ethical debates on ecological restoration developed and sometimes threatened to devolve into scholastic quibbling, pragmatists contributed a welcome perspective, as Light and others urged that those investigating restoration attend to its publicly relevant aspects. Most recently...

    Intersectionality and the Changing Face of Ecofeminism.A. E. Kings - 2017 - Ethics and the Environment 22 (1):63-87.
    The term intersectionality, which is generally attributed to Kimberlé Crenshaw, began as a metaphorical and conceptual tool used to highlight the inability of a single-axis framework to capture the lived experiences of black women. Whilst many disciplines have used the ‘tools’ of intersectionality before 1989, modern day usage of the term is usually associated with Crenshaw’s specific approach. The development of Crenshaw’s intersectionality, originated from the failure of both feminist and anti-racist discourse; to represent and capture the specificity of the (...)

    Lyric Details and Ecological Integrity.Warren Heiti - 2017 - Ethics and the Environment 22 (1):89-109.
    1. My topic is integrity, and the relation between an integrated structure and its component details. Let me begin with an image. The jazz trumpeter and composer Wynton Marsalis says: In American life, you have all of these different agendas, you have conflict all the time, and we’re attempting to achieve harmony through conflict. Which seems strange to say that, but it’s like an argument that you have with the intent to work something out, not an argument that you have (...)

    Technology and/or Nature: Denatured/Renatured/Engineered/Artifacted Life?Holmes Rolston Iii - 2017 - Ethics and the Environment 22 (1):41-62.
    Technology involves artifacts, both in its etymology, from the Greek tekhne, “art” or “skill,” and in its central idea, the body of knowledge available to a culture for fashioning and using implements. This has so dramatically escalated in modern times, with the coupling of science and industry, that we have entered the first century in the 45 million centuries of life on Earth in which one species can aspire to manage the planet’s future. Since Galileo, Earth seemed a minor planet, (...)

    Autonomous Pigs.David Judd & James Rocha - 2017 - Ethics and the Environment 22 (1):1-18.
    It is well established that nonhuman animals are sentient, have feelings, have desires, and are conscious. For many of us, some set of those points is sufficient to ground moral duties to nonhuman animals. Yet, others retain doubts about whether humans have such duties. Perhaps these doubters set even higher standards—standards that they believe nonhuman animals are incapable of meeting. The task of this paper is to consider how nonhuman animals fare against an incredibly high standard for moral duties: autonomy. (...)

    Alienation and Nature in Environmental Philosophy by Simon Hailwood.Piers H. G. Stephens - 2017 - Ethics and the Environment 22 (1):111-118.
    Aldo Leopold once declared that there were two “spiritual dangers” in not owning a farm, with one being “the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace”. The dangers that Leopold was signaling were various, of course, but in that essay they primarily gathered around the problems caused by human distance from nature’s operations, the manners in which we can become divorced from the roots of life by a failure to (...)
