Herren, Helen Karabatzaki, Emile F. Kutash, Teresa Kwiatkowska, Parviz Morewedge, Rosmarie Thee Morewedge, Lorina Quartarone, Livio Rossetti, Daryl M. Tress, Valentina Vincenti & Hideya Yamakawa (eds.) - 2002 - Lexington Books.
    Why should the work of the ancient and the medievals, so far as it relates to nature, still be of interest and an inspiration to us now? The contributions to this enlightening volume explore and uncover contemporary scholarship's debt to the classical and medieval past. Thinking About the Environment synthesizes religious thought and environmental theory to trace a trajectory from Mesopotamian mythology and classical and Hellenistic Greek, through classical Latin writers, to medieval Christian views of the natural world and our (...)

    Beyond uncertainties: Some open questions about chaos and ethics.Teresa Kwiatkowska - 2001 - Ethics and the Environment 6 (1):96-115.
    : Lately, a new language for the understanding of the complexity of life (organism, ecosystem, and social system) has been developed. Chaos, fractals, dissipative structures, self-organization, and complex adaptive systems are some of its key concepts. On this view, reality is not the deterministic structure that Newton envisaged, but rather, a partially unknown or at least unpredictable world of multiple possibilities. As the horizon of our knowledge of natural realities expands, the emergent comprehensive perspective requires a radical reconstruction of both (...)

    Confrontando la naturaleza: ecologí­a, ética y toma de decisiones.Teresa Kwiatkowska - 1999 - Signos Filosóficos 1 (1):70-81.
    "œConfrontando la naturaleza"Dentro del mundo que hemos transformado casi por entero, la conservaci�n del h�bitat natural cada d��a cobra m�s importancia. Las pol��ticas ambientales deben basarse en percepciones competentes sobre el modo funcional de la naturaleza. Tambi�n deben hacerlo en una serie de principios morales que confieran alguna obligatoriedad a nuestras relaciones con el medio ambiente. El art��culo propone, para la toma de decisiones, un enfoque integrado que relaciona a la sociedad humana y la econom��a con la conservaci�n de los (...)

    Environmental Ethics.Teresa Kwiatkowska - 2010 - Dialogue and Universalism 20 (11-12):5-8.
    In everyday life, people grasp mainly short term events of their natural surroundings, since our perception of broad and long term behavior of natural systems has been, and still is, rather limited. Throughout our history there are numerous cases of unheeded environmental warnings. This paper provides an overview of earlier era forewarnings, to illustrate how understanding of past responses to natural predicaments may help enhance future curriculum and policy discussions.

    In Quest for a Solution to Environmental Deterioration.Teresa Kwiatkowska & Wojciech Szatzschneider - 2010 - Dialogue and Universalism 20 (11-12):111-126.
    Adverse environmental and economic impacts of Icelandic volcano triggered discussions about nature’s astounding and unpredictable fury, alongside the inadequacy of human ingenuity and science to deal with factors that are totally independent and practically impossible to control.The first part of this article discusses questions related to understanding of deep uncertainty and possibility of effectively combining qualitative and quantitative analysis. Apparently the problem of incorporating surprise, critical threshold and abrupt changes is well studied in finance, but its poor application led to (...)

    The Natural. So Ambiguous a Word.Teresa Kwiatkowska - 2008 - Dialogue and Universalism 18 (11-12):87-99.
    The term natural has long been one of the key concepts within environmental ethics discourse, environmental legislation, policy and practice. A central issue of many theoretical disputes and conservation/restoration practices revolves around the “naturalness” of living organisms, species or ecosystems. Many argue that natural things, whether they are organisms or inert matter, have intrinsic value that obliges humans to morally consider plants, animals and ecosystems. The ethical questions thus raised lead in turn to metaphysical inquiries about what makes a thing (...)
