    Dwelling in the Anthropocene: Notes From Lake Superior.Joshua Trey Barnett & David Charles Gore - 2020 - Ethics and the Environment 25 (1):19.
    Some earth scientists reckon our current geological epoch as the Holocene, a mild, perhaps interglacial period, in which fluctuations in the earth's temperatures have been hospitable to human beings. The Holocene witnessed advancements in agriculture, writing, technological and tool development, historical awareness, and civilizational and urban expansion. There is, however, an emerging recognition that Homo sapiens have become a planetary force in our own right through the technological, carbon-based economies that have flourished throughout the Holocene. This recognition has prompted the (...)

    The Status of Canyons and the Quest for Conservation.Jane Duran - 2020 - Ethics and the Environment 25 (1):7.
    Much of the contemporary work on preservation centers on the ecosphere in the sense of its biological diversity: that is, much of it centers on plant and animal species, and their place within the surrounding areas, both from the standpoint of reproduction and that of the food chain. But an increasing number of lines of argument have been made about other parts of the planet's surface, and the special importance that might attach to rare areas—areas that in their overall structure (...)

    Reflecting Back, Looking Forward: Ethics and the Environment at 25.Lori Gruen - 2020 - Ethics and the Environment 25 (1):3.
    Twenty-five years ago, when Ethics and the Environment launched, I remember having engaging conversations with the late founding editor, Victoria Davion, about just how important feminist thinking was to ethical explorations of our vexed relationships with the more than human world. She promised to promote feminist philosophical scholarship in this journal and she kept that promise. Although I'm quite skeptical of "metrics" I did a search on the term "feminism" in the three prominent journals that publish on ethics and the (...)

    Morality and the Environmental Crisis by Roger Gottlieb.Madronna Holden - 2020 - Ethics and the Environment 25 (1):85-92.
    Roger Gottlieb's Morality and the Environmental Crisis is a philosophical overview of the choices that will shape our grandchildren's lives, as dramatized in his speculative sketch of two very different futures at the end of this book. Gottlieb more than once notes that he is in his seventh decade of life, appropriately designating this work as that of an elder passing on the knowledge derived from his long career as a scholar, teacher, activist linking environmentalist with spiritual communities, and the (...)

    Extending the Concept of Wilderness Beyond Planet Earth.Alan R. Johnson - 2020 - Ethics and the Environment 25 (1):69.
    The concept of wilderness has been variously conceived at different times and by different individuals. For some, wilderness has been viewed as a source of evil, or at least of chaos, which rightfully should be tamed or subdued, made subject to the controlling influence of human civilization. This attitude typically prevails in frontier or colonizing societies. Alternatively, wilderness has been viewed as a source of positive values, ranging from material resources, wildlife habitat, scientific interest, recreational opportunities, beauty, personal inspiration and (...)

    Who Loves Rats? A Renewed Plea for the Managed Relocations of Endangered Species.Eleni Panagiotarakou - 2020 - Ethics and the Environment 25 (1):51.
    In 2016 a mouse-like creature by the name of Bramble Cay Melomys or Melomys rubicola went extinct.1 It was the "first recorded mammalian extinction due to anthropogenic climate change". The Bramble Cay Melomys lived in a small, reef island composed of coral rubble and sand that is part of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. The report, which made headlines in the global media, described a domino-like chain of events that resulted in the Bramble Cay Melomys becoming extinct. According to (...)

    Ethics & the Environment 25th Anniversary Issue: Introduction From the Editor.Piers H. G. Stephens - 2020 - Ethics and the Environment 25 (1):1.
    At the time that Vicky Davion conceived of and launched Ethics and the Environment twenty-five years ago, environmental philosophy was still struggling for acceptance and respectability as a philosophical subdiscipline. For most of the period since 1979 just one journal, Environmental Ethics, had been the primary beacon of the field, and a second, the United Kingdom-based Environmental Values, had only started up in 1992. Much of the surrounding professional atmosphere at the time was less than congenial, especially in relation to (...)
