How can you use the study of philosophy to make progress toward solving environmental problems? ENVIRONMENTAL ETHICS, FIFTH EDITION introduces you to ethical theory in new and easily understood ways. But most of all, this environmental ethics textbook shows you how we can work together to build a better future.
I downloaded and rented the E-Book for a class I took over the course of 1 semester. It arrived just as any E book would, and I had no problems downloading it onto the Kindle app for IPad. It’s a textbook, therefore I thought it was a pretty dry read. however, I did enjoy thinking about Des Jardins various points he makes about the ethics in the environment, where humans fall into the natural order, and how we can further expand our thoughts and personal ethic to care about the world around us. History and philosophy pave the way towards a personal ethic (in my opinion) and I would say that I learned a great deal from this class with the aide of that book.
I like it

“Environmental Ethics” is a balanced introduction to the subject of ethics and the environmen. After two introductory chapters in which Joseph DesJardins discusses various approaches to moral decision making (such as utilitarian and deontological ethics), subsequent chapters include a number of issues in environmental ethics, such as managing public lands, sustainability and responsibility to the future, anthropocentric and biocentric ethics and the inherent value of life, the land ethics, deep ecology, ecofeminism, and environmental justice and social equality.
A great introduction to a fascinating subject

“Environmental Ethics” by Joseph Des Jardins is a balanced and relatively complete introduction to an issue that is bound to be widely discussed in the decades ahead. After two introductory chapters in which he discusses among other matters various approaches to moral decision making (such as utilitarian and deontological ethics), subsequent chapters include issues such as managing public lands, sustainability and responsibility to the future, anthropocentric and biocentric ethics and the inherent value of life, the land ethics, deep ecology, ecofeminism, and environmental justice and social equality.
