Knowledge and obligation in environmental ethics: A phenomenological approach

Environmental Ethics 4 (2):153-162 (1982)
Ecological ethics, in which ecological science informs the basic principles of morality, requires a significant revision of traditional metaethics, especially regarding the views (1) that moral judgments are justified by deductive argument, and (2) that there is a dichotomy between fact and value. This interpretation of the relationship between knowledge and obligation is grounded in the phenomenology of perception with special attention to the role of a person’s world view in the perception of both facts and values and the fittingness relation between perception, world view, and obligation
