  1. Martyrdom, Sacrifice, and Political Memory in El Salvador.Anna L. Peterson & Brandt G. Peterson - 2008 - Social Research: An International Quarterly 75 (2):511-542.
    Themes of Christian martyrdom were central to popular political mobilization in El Salvador, as in much of Latin America, during the 1970s and 1980s. The story of Christ's sacrifice provided a powerful narrative for explaining injustice and political violence, a frame for interpretation as well as action during the twelve-year Salvadoran civil war, which ended in 1992 by a negotiated settlement. In the first part of this article we trace the politics of martyrdom and sacrifice through the war. The final (...)

  2. Environmental Ethics and the Social Construction of Nature.Anna Peterson - 1999 - Environmental Ethics 21 (4):339-357.
    Nature can be understood as socially constructed in two senses: in different cultures’ interpretations of the nonhuman world and in the physical ways that humans have shaped even areas that they think of as “natural.” Both understandings are important for environmental ethics insofar as they highlight the diversity of ways of viewing and living in nature. However, strong versions of the social constructionist argument contend that there is no “nature” apart from human discourse and practices. This claim is problematic both (...)

    [Book Review] Being Human, Ethics, Environment, and Our Place in the World. [REVIEW]Anna Lisa Peterson - 2002 - Hastings Center Report 32 (1):40.
    _Being Human _examines the complex connections among conceptions of human nature, attitudes toward non-human nature, and ethics. Anna Peterson proposes an "ethical anthropology" that examines how ideas of nature and humanity are bound together in ways that shape the very foundations of cultures. Peterson discusses mainstream Western understandings of what it means to be human, as well as alternatives to these perspectives, and suggests that the construction of a compelling, coherent environmental ethics will revise our ideas not only about nature (...)

    Toward a Materialist Environmental Ethic.Anna L. Peterson - 2006 - Environmental Ethics 28 (4):375-393.
    Environmental ethics has been dominated by an idealist logic that limits its positive impact on the natural world about which environmental philosophers care deeply. Environmental ethicists need to alter the ways we think and talk about what we value and the relations among ideas, values, and actions. Drawing on the sociology of religion and Marxian philosophy among other sources, a new approach may increase our understanding of how ideas are lived out and how we might increase the impact of our (...)

    Review of Tatjana Višak, Killing Happy Animals: Explorations in Utilitarian Ethics. [REVIEW]Anna Peterson - 2014 - Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 27 (3):523-525.
    I agreed to review this book based on the title alone (coupled with a cover picture of a adult pig and several piglets outdoors in the grass). My decision was justified, since it offers a coherent, detailed response to an important problem in animal ethics and animal welfare: the question of humane (or “animal friendly”) animal husbandry, especially in the meat industry, in which animals are raised with the end of being killed long before the end of their natural lifespan.Humane (...)

Finally, a history of ``alternative''agriculture provides a framework for thinking aboutthe ways the different cases shed light on the complexrelations between tradition and innovation inagriculture. A historical perspective highlights theextent to which ``alternative'' is a relative term. Themonocrop, ``factory'' mode that dominate US agriculturetoday certainly (...)

    Gretel van Wieren: Restored to Earth: Christianity, Environmental Ethics, and Ecological Restoration.Anna Peterson - 2014 - Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 27 (2):347-348.
    This book explores the moral, social, and spiritual dimensions of ecological restoration. Gretel Van Wieren, a religion scholar, builds on the work of both critics and advocates of restoration to develop a balanced and well-informed approach to a controversial topic in environmental ethics. Ultimately she finds much value in restoration, as much for its ability to help build human community as for its contributions to ecological well-being. Restoration, she summarizes, is “the attempt to heal and make the human relationship to (...)
