Aristotle’s Powers and Responsibility for Nature

Peter Lang (2011)
Stephan John Millett
Curtin University, Western Australia
This book addresses what 'nature' is and humans' obligations toward the natural world. Beginning with ideas traced from Aristotle through some of the significant figures in European philosophy, the author shows that each living thing is a unique source of value. This value puts humans under an obligation and adopting an attitude of responsibility to living things is an essential part of what it means to be human
