Ethics and the Environment includes contributions from distinguished philosophers, humanists, politicians, geologists, chemists and physicists. This volume opens with an historical and philosophical background to provide a basis for discussion of significant contemporary changes in ethical theory. Key themes and concepts in the environmental ethics debate are addressed, including property rights, organism and community, and environmentalist values. The political and legislative dimensions of environmental issues are analyzed. The book concludes with discussion of two environmental problems that affect Long Island, nuclear energy and safe water supply. Contributors: E. Shirk, M. Soupios, A. Berleant, C. Mooney, D. Sprintzen, E. Katz, E. Walther, the Honorable P.G. Halpin, T. Goldfard, J. Kluewer, R. Watson, and J. Kane. Co-published with the Long Island Philosophical Society.
