Great quality, great book! I used it for my env. ethics class and it was filled with good readings. The book itself was in optimal, new conditions.

I never thought there was such a thing as Environmental Ethics until I took my college course. Understand this, you may need a dictionary handy, or have Google linked on your computer for many BIG words. This book is deep into philosophy, but environmentally speaking. I learned quite a bit from this book, and also completed many writings of my own. There are many different contributers in this book; historically and modern day. It will get you deep into your moral and ethical side. Yes, I laughed too when I started the term, but ended with an open mind.

I gave it 4 stars due to it being a little challenging; had to read each writers input 2-3 times.

This book is a must. It does a great job of informing you about both side of environmental issues. The language is a bit difficult but well worth it.

Perfect condition, great book.

Accurate description! Good read :)

Keller and the various contributors assume readers have a solid foundation in philosophy rather than, say, environmental sciences. It is more geared toward philosophers looking to expand their knowledge about this dimension of ethics, and not so much toward environmental scientists and students looking to expand their understanding of the ethical dimensions of the field. I used this as a textbook in a course populated by non-philosophy majors, and it was a struggle. I am looking for a more appropriate text now.

It arrived a few days after I had hoped it would, but still in time. It's a fabulous book, combining esoteric philosophical underpinnings of ethics with justifications for and arguments against direct action, and addressing pragmatic consequences of ethical positions.
