However, CBA serves these useful purposes only under certain conditions. First, CBA must give way to important nonwelfarist concerns, such as deontological rights. Second, CBA must give way when the endowments of affected people vary a great deal. Third, CBA may need to be adjusted to account for uninformed or distorted preferences. Interestingly, agencies already seem to depart from textbook CBA in order to respond to these concerns. Adler is in law, University of Pennsylvania. Posner is in law, University of Chicago.

Agar, Nicholas, Life's Intrinsic Value: Science, Ethics, and Nature. New York: Columbia University Press, 2001. Anything living is intrinsically valuable, from the bacteriophage T4 to humans. A biocentric ethic forms the platform for an ethic of the environment. Just as physical science once dislodged humans from the center of the universe, biological science challenges the received wisdom that only humans are valuable in themselves. Analysis of historic and contemporary views from Aristotle and Kant to E. O. Wilson, Peter Singer, Holmes Rolston III, Michael Ruse, and J. Baird Callicott.
Some chapter titles and themes: The psychological view of intrinsic value. Defining intrinsic value. Why are humans morally special? Scientific facts and values. The limits of ethical extensionism and beyond. Two types of natural kinds overlap. Combining the overlap of descriptive and metaphysical kind to unearth environmental value. Recent defenses of biocentrism. A morally specialized account of life. Commonsense and customized accounts of life. A biofunctional explanation of self-movement. Why the representationally alive are morally important. The teleological account of contents in biopreferences. The threat of genic selectionism. Sentience and goals. The shortcomings of individualism. Environmental value holism. Individualistic ethics of species and ecosystems. An impossible ethic? Does life value leave room for human lives? A call for a scientifically informed appreciation of nature. Agar is in philosophy, Victoria University, Wellington, New Zealand. (v.12,#2)
Agar, Nicholas, "Biocentrism and the Concept of Life," Ethics 108(1997):147-168. "I have sought to show that our entrenched apparently anthropocentric moral views can take us some distance into nature. The representational account of life (developed in this article) acts as a bridge between living things and value-anchoring psychological notions (such as suffering pains and pleasures). It enables value to be spread very broadly throughout nature. Individual things are not all to be valued equally, however. The amount of value we assign to an individual depends on the range and complexity of goals that an organism is capable of. Why does this type of complexity matter? As organisms have more varied and numerous goals they tend to become more folk psychological. Folk psychological notions in turn have the closest association with relevant normative notions. Thus the life-representational ethic both acknowledges the preeminent place of humans on this planet and spreads value broadly enough to provide firm foundations for an environmental ethic." "Consciousness does not occupy such an important place in the life representational ethic. Many nonconscious organisms will be morally valuable. However, ... consciousness will open up novel varieties of goal to an organism" (p. 168). Agar is in philosophy, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. (v9,#1)
Agar, Nicholas. "Valuing Species and Valuing Individuals." Environmental Ethics 17(1995):397-415. My goal in this paper is to account for the value of species in terms of the value of individual organisms that make them up. Many authors have pointed to an apparent conflict between a species preservationist ethic and moral theories that place value on individuals. I argue for an account of the worth of individual organisms grounded in the representational goals of those organisms. I claim that this account leads to an acceptably extensive species preservationist ethic. Agar is in the department of philosophy, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. (EE)

Over the centuries, villagers in India have developed a wide range of techniques to collect rainwater, groundwater, stream water, river water, and flood water. Since the colonial era, however, such water harvesting systems have been declining. Reviving them offers a realistic alternative to the large dams and water development projects promoted by the state authorities as a "solution:" to India's water crisis. (v8,#3)

Agrawal, Arun. "The Community vs. the Market and the State: Forest Use in Uttarakhand in the Indian Himalayas", Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 9(1996):1-15. Most writers on resource management presume that local populations, if they act in their self-interest, seldom conserve or protect natural resources without external intervention or privatization. Using the example of forest management by villagers in the Indian Himalayas, this paper argues that rural populations can often use resources sustainably and successfully, even under assumptions of self-interested rationality. Under a set of specified social and environmental conditions, conditions that prevail in large areas of the Himalayas and may also exist in other mountain regions, community institutions are more efficient in managing resources than either private individuals or the central government. In advancing this argument, the paper undermines the often dogmatic belief in the universal superiority of private forms of ownership and management.

Airaksinen, Timo, "Original Populations and Environmental Rights." Journal of Applied Philosophy 5 (1988): 37 47. Do indigenous populations have the right to maintain destructive environmental practices? The argument here suggests that original populations are part of natural environmental equilibria, and that if nature has intrinsic value, then the original population acquires strong rights to continue its way of life. Implying the necessity for compensation and the sharing of political power, this strong right to use the environment contrasts with policies of preservation. (Katz, Bibl # 2)

Aitken, Gill, "Conservation and Individual Worth," Environmental Values 6(1997):439-454. ABSTRACT: It is commonly supposed that individual animals are of little relevance to conservation which is concerned, instead, with groups of things or wholes such as species, habitats, and the like. It is further contended by some that by prioritising individuals, two of those values that are held dear by conservation--namely natural selection and fitness--are compromised. Taking wildlife rehabilitation as a paradigm case of concern for the individual, it is argued that the latter claim is based upon mistaken assumptions. Then, using red deer culling as a case study, the discord between conservation's holistic values and a concern for individual worth is explored. It emerges that the conservation value of red deer culling is more apparent than real and thus that there is more room for conservationists acceptance of individual worth than usually supposed.

Akama, John S., Lant, Christopher L., Burnett, G. Wesley. "A Political-Ecology Approach to Wildlife Conservation in Kenya," Environmental Values 5(1996):335-347. Kenya has one of the highest remaining concentrations of tropical savanna wildlife in the world. It has been recognized by the state and international community as a unique world heritage which should be preserved for posterity. However, the wildlife conservation efforts of the Kenya government confront complex and often persistent social and ecological problems, including land-use conflicts between the local people and wildlife, local peoples' suspicions and hostilities toward state policies of wildlife conservation, and accelerated destruction of wildlife habitats. This essay uses a political-ecological framework in the analysis of the social factors of wildlife conservation in Kenya. It postulates that the overriding socioeconomic issue impacting wildlife conservation in Kenya is underdevelopment. The problem of underdevelopment is manifested in forms of increasing levels of poverty, famine and malnutrition. The long term survival of Kenya's wildlife depends on social and ecological solutions to the problems of underdevelopment.

Akerman, Maria, "What Does `Natural Capital' Do? The Role of Metaphor in Economic Understanding of the Environment," Environmental Values 12(2003): 431 448. At the time of its introduction in the end of the 1980s, the concept of natural capital represented new, more ecologically aware thinking in economics. As a symbol of novel thinking, the metaphor of natural capital stimulated a debate between different disciplinary traditions on the definitions of the concept and research priorities and methods. The concept became a means to control the discourse of sustainable development. In this paper, I focus on the power/knowledge implications of the use of the concept, and I follow the career of the concept of natural capital in ecological economic publications between the years 1988 and 2000. The main interests are(1) in the use of the concept to affect the rules according to which claims concerning sustainable development can be made and (2) in the constitution of objects of environmental knowledge.

Akkerman, Abraham, "Urban planning in the founding of Cartesian thought," Philosophy and Geography 4 (No. 2, 2001): 141-167. It is a matter of tacit consensus that rationalist adeptness in urban planning traces its foundations to the philosophy of the Renaissance thinker and mathematician René Descartes. This study suggests, in turn, that the planned urban environment of the Renaissance may have also led Descartes, and his intellectual peers, to tenets that became the foundations of modern philosophy and science. The geometric street pattern of the late middle ages and the Renaissance, the planned townscapes, street views and the formal garden design, appeared as parables for the perfection of the universe and the supremacy of critical reason. It is within this urban metaphor that Descartes' account betrays perceptual and conceptual impact from the contrast between convoluted medieval townscapes and the emerging harmonious street patterns where defined vistas and predictable clarity of street views were paramount. The geometrically delineated street views of the Renaissance new town became the spark that lit the philosopher's sagacity in reflecting upon the concept of 'clear and distinct ideas'. Past suggestions that Descartes was led to his philosophical breakthroughs through his discovery of co-ordinate geometry reinforce further the stance that Renaissance planning predisposed rationalist thought.

Albanese, Catherine L., Nature Religion in America: From the Algonkian Indians to the New Age. University of Chicago Press, 1990. 267 pages, $ 24.95. Five chapters examine nature as symbolic religious center in the views of the aboriginal Americans and the first Europeans; in the "organic" compact of the Founders; in the Transcendentalists; in the "sectarian healers" of the late 19th century; and finally in several contemporary manifestations. The Amerindians' sense of themselves as a part of nature contrasts with the Puritan's fears of wilderness. These themes were subsumed, to a degree, by the Freemasons of the early republicans. But when Emerson, Thoreau and John Muir attempted to reconcile these disparate legacies, they only succeeded in transforming them into another conundrum: an Aristotelian belief in nature as "really real" versus a Platonic concept of nature as "ideal" or "illusory." In the course of her survey, Albanese examines several kinds of late 19th century mind cures; herbalists, homeopaths, chiropractors and others preached a kind of Christian physiology teaching that harmony with natural forces was a means to ordering and using those forces for one's own good and the good of society. Einstein and Planck upset the belief in such an order, but the new, fluid science of the 20th century has produced today "recapitulated pieties" of the nation's beginnings, as in the writings of Annie Dillard. At issue in this ethereal debate was the tangible question of whether human beings were to harmonize with nature or to have mastery over it. Really a set of far-ranging essays more than a narrative account of nature religion in America. Albanese is professor of religious studies at the University of California at Santa Barbara. (v1,#4)

Aldred, Jonathan, "Existence Value, Welfare and Altruism." Environmental Values 3(1994):381-402. Existence Value has become an increasingly important concept as the use of cost benefit analysis has spread from traditional applications to attempts to place monetary value on, for instance, a rare wetland habitat. Environmental economists have generally accepted the tensions arising in existence value concept from the range of recent applications, but it is argued here that their various attempts to resolve the difficulties have largely failed. Critics from outside economics, on the other hand, typically claim that the very notion of existence value as understood in economics is flawed, and urge its abandonment altogether. This paper suggests, instead, a fundamental redefinition of existence value, which, it is argued, (i)explains a number of diverse problems posed by the usual meaning of the term in economics; (ii)does not strain the intentions of respondents to `willingness-to-pay' surveys; (iii)is consistent with a more realistic model of rational choice in environmental decision-making; and (iv)is sensitive to criticisms from environmental ethics.

Aldred, Jonathan, "Cost Benefit Analysis, Incommensurability and Rough Equality," Environmental Values 11(2002):27 47. A recurring question about cost benefit analysis (CBA) concerns its scope. CBA is a decision making method frequently employed in environmental policy making, in which things which have no market price are treated as if they were commodities. They are given a monetary value, a form of price. But it is widely held that some things cannot be meaningfully priced, thus substantially limiting the scope of CBA. The aim of this paper is to test some aspects of this broad claim, focusing on problems of incomparability and incommensurability. In particular, the role of rough equality as a putative form of comparison is investigated. I argue that while an assessment of the full significance of rough equality for practical decision making awaits resolution of a number of important technical questions, it does not provide a strong enough form of comparison to support CBA.

Alexander, Charles P., "For the Birds," Time 157 (no. 2, June 4, 2001):66-67. Bird watching is hotter than ever, though 15% of 800 species that reside in or migrate through the U.S. are in serious decline. Main trouble: sprawl. Can fifty million birdwatchers turned conservationists save the environment? David Allen Sibley's The Sibley Guide to Birds has sold half a million copies in the first six months, the fastest selling bird book in history. (v. 12, #3)

Alexander, Donald, "Bioregionalism: Science or Sensibility," Environmental Ethics 12(1990):161 173. A criticism of the bioregional movement in environmental philosophy for its unclear and incorrect philosophical and scientific concepts: e.g., definition of bioregion, boundaries of bioregion, and reverence for natural law. Bioregionalism should not be a scientific concept but a cultural sensibility, a social value. Region is a dialectical concept integrating both human and natural parameters. (Katz, Bibl # 2)
Alexander, Donald. "Bioregionalism: Science or Sensibility?" Environmental Ethics 12(1990):161 73. The current interest in bioregionalism, stimulated in part by Kirkpatrick Sale's Dwellers in the Land, shows that people are looking for a form of political praxis which addresses the importance of region. In this paper, I argue that much of the bioregional literature written to date mystifies the concept of region, discounting the role of subjectivity and culture in shaping regional boundaries and veers toward a simplistic view of "nature knows best." Bioregionalism can be rehabilitated, provided we treat it not as a "revealed wisdom" for the reconstruction of human society, but as a sensibility and environmental ethic that can infuse our work even as we make use of the functional regionalisms that increasingly shape people's consciousness. I conclude by citing Lewis Mumford's concept of a region as capturing the dialectical interplay of natural and cultural elements.

Allen, Colin and Marc D. Hauser, "Concept Attribution in Nonhuman Animals: Theoretical and Methodological Problems in Ascribing Complex Mental Processes," Philosophy of Science 58(1991):221-240. The demise of behaviorism has made ethologists more willing to ascribe mental states to animals. However, a methodology that can avoid the charge of excessive anthropomorphism is needed. Allen and Hauser describe a series of experiments that could help determine whether the behavior of nonhuman animals towards dead conspecifics is concept mediated. The behavior of some animals is clearly guided by complex mental processes. The techniques developed by comparative psychologists and behavioral ecologists are able to provide us with the tools critically to evaluate hypotheses concerning the continuity between human minds and animal minds.

Allen, Colin; Bekoff, Marc; and Lauder, George, eds. Nature's Purposes: Analyses of Function and Design in Biology. Cambridge, MA: MIT Press, 1998. 603 pages. 22 papers, mostly from philosophy journals. The dogma is that teleology is unscientific, and in some contexts it is, but in other contexts biologists can avoid it only with implausible circumlocution. Long hair on dogs has the purpose (function) of keeping them warm; it does not have the purpose of harboring fleas, though it does both these things well. Some scientists consider teleology a shorthand for phenomena that could be expressed more accurately eliminating it, but others find it the best way to express what they need to say about what is going on in the world. The editors are a philosopher, a student of animal behavior, and a functional morphologist. (v.9,#3)
