A Jamesian Approach to Environmental Ethics

Contemporary Pragmatism 9 (1):5-24 (2012)

Todd Lekan
Muskingum College
James's moral philosophy is a valuable resource for environmental philosophy because it reveals and impugns some deep, unhelpful assumptions about the relationship between moral theory and the moral life. In particular, James's ethics demonstrates that the debates in environmental ethics are better regarded as disputes about ideals of the kind of self and world we want, rather than as disputes over abstract propositions about the intrinsic value of nature
