Book Description :

Canadian Environmental Philosophy is the first collection of essays to take up theoretical and practical issues in environmental philosophy today, from a Canadian perspective. The essays cover various subjects, including ecological nationalism, the legacy of Grey Owl, the meaning of “outside” to Canadians, the paradigm shift from mechanism to ecology in our understanding of nature, the meaning and significance of the Anthropocene, the challenges of biodiversity protection in Canada, the conservation status of crossbred species in the age of climate change, and the moral status of ecosystems. This wide range of topics is as diverse and challenging as the Canadian landscape itself. Given the extent of humanity's current impact on the biosphere – especially evident with anthropogenic climate change and the ongoing mass extinction – it has never been more urgent for us to confront these environmental challenges as Canadian citizens and citizens of the world. Canadian Environmental Philosophy galvanizes this conversation from the perspective of this place.

Book Description :

Is it possible to design a forest policy that satisfies ethical and environmental concerns and is acceptable to business, labour and First Nations representatives? What is the best path through the tangle of ethical issues surrounding the collapse of the east coast fishery? What sort of obligations does a rich nation such as Canada have to satisfy the claims of global environmental justice? These are the sorts of issues in applied ethics that are tackled in this collection of essays, the vast majority of which have been written especially for this volume. It is the first Canadian collection of its kind. The book is divided in to sections detailing with such topics as the environment and the economy; ethical issues relating to non-human animals; issues of gender; and issues relating to native peoples. Most of the authors are philosophers, though specialists in geography, geology, and the social sciences are also among the contributors. Frequent reference is made to theoretical ethical concerns, but the focus throughout is on applied ethics, and a variety of case studies are included. (Examples include essays on animal rights and the case of native hunters; surface mining in Northern Ontario, the Quebec arctic; and fishing communities in the Maritimes.) Comparisons are frequently drawn to policies and ethical questions arising in other countries-most prominently the United States.

Book Description :

Environmental Ethics for Canadians is a comprehensive introduction to the core ethical questions shaping current environmental debates. This wide-ranging introduction combines readings by leaders of the environmental ethics and philosophy movement with contemporary selections and original pieces by emerging voices in the field. Readings are complemented by Byron Williston's commentary, which provides necessary context for complex theories and explication of abstract concepts in an engaging and accessible style. Organized into three sections, this hybrid text explores thirteen diverse and contentious topics in a balanced and even-handed manner. Areas of discussion include animal welfarism, biocentrism, ecocentrism, ecofeminism, climate change, and environmental aesthetics. Each chapter begins with an 'Ecological Intuition Pump', a brief paragraph that encourages students to consider their personal thoughts and attitudes towards 'large picture' issues that will be discussed in the text that follows. Further, Environmental Ethics for Canadians features seven selections by Canadian academics in addition to end-of-chapter case studies that highlight environmental issues of particular concern for Canadians.
