Alienation and Environmental Philosophy

Simon Hailwood


Many environmental scientists, students and activists characterise our scenario as one in all alienation from nature, yet this thought can simply look meaningless or irrational. during this booklet, Simon Hailwood significantly analyses the belief of alienation from nature and argues that it may be an invaluable suggestion whilst understood pluralistically. He distinguishes varied senses of alienation from nature bearing on assorted environmental contexts and issues, and attracts upon quite a number philosophical and environmental rules and issues together with pragmatism, eco-phenomenology, weather swap, ecological justice, Marxism and significant thought. His novel point of view indicates that assorted environmental matters - either anthropocentric either anthropocentric and nonanthropocentric - can dovetail, instead of compete with, one another, and that our alienation from nature don't need to be whatever to be regretted or triumph over. His e-book will curiosity a vast readership in environmental philosophy and ethics, political philosophy, geography and environmental experiences.
