    How Knowledge of the Golden Jackal (Canis Aureus) is Formed: Report From the Danube Delta.Mihnea Tănăsescu & Tefan Constantinescu - 2019 - Environmental Values 28 (6):665-691.
    This paper analyses the ways in which human knowledge of the golden jackal is formed in the case of a rural community of the Romanian Danube Delta. We focus on the territory where humans and jackals overlap and, by using wildlife monitoring alongside interviews and participant observation with humans, we detail how villagers come to have a particularly negative view of this resident canid. Foregrounding the jackal's highly symbolic nature, we trace the development of the community's knowledge of this animal (...)

    Responsibility and the Ethics of Ecological Restoration.Mihnea Tanasescu & X. X. - 2017 - Environmental Philosophy 14 (2):255-274.
    This paper argues that the concept of responsibility can and should ground an ethics of ecological restoration. It starts with William Jordan’s concept of restoration, namely the creation of mutually beneficial human-nature relationships. It builds a concept of responsibility using the works of Hans Jonas and Martin Drenthen, understood as a correlate of our technological capacity, as well as a relationship to the possibility of meaningfulness today and in the indefinite future. It is argued that we are responsible in a (...)

    Field Notes on the Meaning of Rewilding.Mihnea Tanasescu - 2017 - Ethics, Policy and Environment 20 (3):333-349.
    This paper investigates the concept of rewilding by looking at its uses so far and its implementation by Rewilding Europe, one of the leading rewilding organizations today. Juxtaposing theory with practice, it proposes understanding rewilding as a hybrid ecological semiotic concept. More precisely, rewilding's ecological goals are necessarily mediated, and therefore transformed, through semiotic practices. This is exemplified through a discussion of a rewilding project in the Romanian Danube Delta.

    Nature Advocacy and the Indigenous Symbol.Mihnea Tanasescu - 2015 - Environmental Values 24 (1):105-122.
    In 2008, Ecuador became the first country in history to grant constitutional rights to nature. What is termed the indigenous symbol played a significant role in this event. The rights of nature are used as an occasion to interrogate the indigenous symbol in order to reveal what it does, as opposed to what it says. The account of the rights of nature originating in indigenous sensibilities is presented, and subsequently critiqued. The argument makes use of the notion of representative claim (...)
