Anker, Peder, The Political Limits of Deep Ecology, M.A. dissertation (in Norwegian), in the Department of Philosophy, University of Oslo. The argument is that deep ecology provides insufficient guidance for the solution of political problems requiring compromises in setting standards that must do justice to both sides, with particular reference to pollution issues. Other philosophers, such as Habermas and Rawls, although operating from an anthropocentric position, have important insights about justice that deep ecology lacks and needs.

Anoliefo, G.O., O.S. Isikhuemhen and E.C. Okolo. "Traditional Coping Mechanism and Environmental Sustainability Strategies in Nnewi, Nigeria," Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 11(1999):101 109. Nnewi is situated some 30 kilometres South East of Onitsha in Anambra State in the southeastern part of Nigeria. This highly commercial town has undergone rapid urbanisation and industrialisation within the past two decades, since the end of the 1967 1970 Nigerian civil war. The Igbo community of the study area had traditionally employed bioconversion methods and other indigenous technology to process or recycle bio and non degradable wastes. Industrialisation has enjoyed priority status in this locality as a requirement for modernisation and economic progress. The rapid urbanisation, aggressive industrialisation, and the attendant uncontrolled population growth have had a deleterious impact on the environment. There is now a wide range of industrial wastes that are released daily into the environment. Effects of these activities on the socio cultural practices of the people, plant genetic resources and the environment are highlighted. In addition to palliative measures suggested here, a call is made to revisit the successful indigenous waste treatment and management technology formerly practised by the Igbo community. The importance of combining modem biotechnological approaches with the indigenous technology, norms and practices of Nwewi people to effect suitable waste treatment and management, as well as improving the living habits and the education of the people about their environment, is recommended.

Anoliefo, G.O., Isikhuemhen, O.S., and Ochije, N.R., "Environmental implications of the erosion of cultural taboo practices in Awka South local
government area of Anambra State, Migeria: 1. Forests, trees, and water resource preservation," Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 16(2003):281-296. Cultural taboos and their sanctions have helped to check abuse of the environment at least among the local people. The disregard for these traditional checks and balances especially among Christians has adversely affected their enforcement at this time. The "god" of the shrine in Obunagu village was much revered until the advent of Christianity. This religion has had an eroding effect on the taboos, which were put in place to protect their forests and streams. The abandonment of traditional cultural practices is doing harm that goes beyond the abrogation of traditional cultural practices to serious threat to natural environmental structures. KEY WORDS: cultural taboos, forest, shrines, sustainability, traditional practices, trees. (JAEE)

Anthony, Brian Patrick, "Nature's Cathedral: The Union of Theology and Ecology in the Writings of John Muir," Ecotheology 7 (1, July 2002):74-80. John Muir has strongly impacted the environmental movement since he penned his works during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. While the Scottish-born naturalist is well-known for his rugged individualism, the driving force behind his thought and effort was his connection with the Divine. Muir inherited a seeking soul from his devoutly Reformist father, Daniel. The younger Muir, however, would find his principal inspiration in the gospel of nature. A foray into industry convinced Muir that the stain of civilisation blinds us to this original scripture. Muir spoke of a distinct correlation between humanity's spiritual ills and the destruction of the natural world, and suggested an extension of the Christian ethic to all creatures. In his various travelogues, he offers an illuminating vision of the God of nature, and humanity's position in relation to both Creator and creation.

Anthony, Raymond, "Risk Communication, Value Judgments, and the Public Policy Maker Relationship in a Climate of Public Sensitivity toward Animals: Revisiting Britain's Foot and Mouth Crisis," Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 17(2004):363-383. This paper offers some suggestions on, and encouragement for, how to be better at risk communication in times of agricultural crisis. During the foot and mouth epizootic, the BritIsh public, having no precedent to deal with such a rapid and widespread epizootic, no existing rules or conventions, and no social or political consensus, was forced to confront the facts of a perceived "economic disease." Foot and mouth appeared as an economic disease because the major push to eradicate it was motivated exclusivbly by trade and economic reasons and not because of threats it posed to the lives of human beings and livestock. The British public deferred responsibility to their elected officials for a speedy end to this non life threatening viral epizootic. The latter, however, did not have a contingency plan in place to tackle such an extensive outbreak. The appeal to an existing policy, i.e., mass eradication, as the exclusive strategy of containment was a difficult pill for the public to swallow well before the end of the 226 day ordeal.
Public moral uneasiness during the crisis, while perhaps symbolic of growing discontent with an already fractured relationship with farmed animals and the state of animal farming today, arguably, also reflected deep disappointment in government agents to recognize inherently and conditionally normative assumptions in their argument as well as recognize their narrow conception of risk. Furthermore, broader stakeholder participation was clearly missing from the outset, especially with respect to the issue of vaccination. A greater appreciation for two way risk communication is suggested for science based public policy in agriculture, followed by suggestions on how to be more vigilant in the future.

Apffel Marglin, Frederique, "From Fieldwork to Mutual Learning: Working with PRATEC," Environmental Values 11(2002):345 367. This paper places the work of a Peruvian NGO (PRATEC), with which the author collaborates, within a broad context of the theory of knowledge. The three members of PRATEC were engaged in different aspects of the development enterprise. Out of their perceived failure of that enterprise, they deprofessionalised themselves and founded this NGO. The author argues that within the professional academic disciplines it is impossible to produce a knowledge that can contribute to the procreative concerns of communities, that is, their concerns about their continuity and well being. She does a brief historical review of the emergence of the modern university in the nineteenth century and the hidden political agenda of the new so called value free knowledge it institutionalised. She ends up advocating a rejection of the double participation necessitated by professional academic disciplines. (EV)

It is a place where an idea is clearly expressed. ... In an effort to bridge the chasm that has developed between the critics and the defenders of wilderness, this Essay examines the qualities of a place that confer wildness and explores some of the implications of treating wildness as a quality best expressed in the places we call wilderness, but also infused in special places closer to home" (p. 349). "Wilderness is criticized for separating people from nature, for ignoring aboriginal people, and for holding nature static, even as it is revered as a place. The representation of wilderness described here as the end of two-dimensional continuum of wildness defined by naturalness and freedom from human control offers a way out of this dilemma. By describing wildness as a continuum, we acknowledge the wildness that is all around us even as we celebrate the places at the end of the continuum" (p. 366).

Appleby, Michael C. et al (six others), "What price cheap food?" Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 16(2003):395-408. Report of a meeting that gathered many of UK senior animal scientists with representatives of the farming industry, consumer groups, animal welfare groups, and environmentalists. There was strong consensus that the current economic structure of agriculture cannot adequately address major issues of concern to society: farm incomes, food security and safety, the needs of developing countries, animal welfare, and the environment. These issues must be addressed by a combination of legislation, restructuring of the market, and use of public funds.

Appleby, Michael C., "Sustainable Agriculture is Humane, Humane Agriculture is Sustainable," Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 18(2005):293-303. Procedures that increase the sustainability of agriculture often result in animals being treated more humanely: both livestock in animal and mixed farming and wildlife in arable farming. Equally, procedures ensuring humane treatment of farm animals often increase sustainability, for example in disease control and manure management. This overlap between sustainability and humaneness is not coincidental. Both approaches can be said to be animal centered, to be based on the fact that animal production is primarily a biological process. Proponents of both will gain from recognition of commonality and development of cooperation. A collaborative approach to humane sustainable agriculture will benefit animals, people, and the environment.

Appleton, Jay, "Nature as Honorary Art," Environmental Values 7(1998): 255 266. This paper addresses the apparent difficulty experienced by philosophers in applying the methodology of art criticism to the aesthetics of nature and uses the idea of `narrative' to explore it. A short poem is chosen which recounts the `narrative' of a simple natural process - the passage of day into night - and this is followed by a simplified critique illustrating how the poem invites questions relating to style, technique, subject, etc., leading to the query whether the art form (poem) can be dispensed with and the subject (nature) be left to tell its own story, using the `language' of symbolism. The interface between art and science is reviewed particularly in the light of the ideas of John Dewey and what has happened since. The `symbolism of environmental opportunity' is proposed as the key to crossing the arts/science boundary, and the question is raised whether the distinctiveness of nature is of paramount importance in this context. Various grounds for scepticism are examined, e.g. the danger of drawing inferences about human interaction with nature from the behaviour of other species.

Arai, A. Bruce "Science and Culture in the Environmental State: The Case of Reactor Layups at Ontario Hydro", Organization and Environment 14 (No. 4, December 2001) pp.409-24. The widespread concern about the declining state of our physical environment is often accompanied by frustration about what to do to prevent or even reverse such deterioration. In the past, policy makers, legislators, and the general public have usually turned to scientists and scientific knowledge for answers. But recently, theorists and others have re-emphasized the importance of culture in understanding the environment. In this article, this culturalist critique of scientific knowledge is discussed and is then related to the decision by Ontario Hydro to lay up seven of its nuclear reactors. This situation is used to illustrate the continuing relevance of scientific knowledge for addressing environmental concerns. Arai is associate professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Wilfred Laurier University, Waterloo, Ontario. (v.13,#2)

Arbor, J.L., "Animal Chauvinism, Plant-Regarding Ethics and the Torture of Trees", Australasian Journal of Philosophy, 64, (1986): 335-39. The extension of moral considerability to "higher" animals on the basis of properties possessed by both animals and humans excludes many species of animals and non-animate beings. The author claims that the exclusion of "lower" animals from the class marked out for privileged treatment by Western ethics together with the assumption that living inanimate beings can safely be excluded deserves to be queried. It is not suggested that the value of human and animal states of consciousness be denied, however, a plant-regarding ethic would reject the claim that in all cases of conflict between the interests of animals and plants the former always prevails. According to the author "[a] plant-regarding ethic requires the rooting out of all ... forms of animal chauvinism and a branching forth of new sentiments and new systems of thought."

Ariansen, Per, "Anthropocentrism with a Human Face" draft article, in English. Ariansen proposes an anthropocentric environmental ethic that gives due room for the moral intuitions that it is blameworthy to mistreat animals and even, in some cases, to destroy inanimate objects, though direct moral obligations are toward humans and human projects only. Ariansen holds that we could not act morally directly toward plants or animals, even if we very strongly wanted to. Still, a deep respect for the suffering of others imposes upon humans a limited prime facie commitment also to animal welfare, and even to the wanton destruction of the environment.

Ariansen, Per, "Anthropocentrism with a Human Face," Opuscula (published by the Examen Philosophicum Section of the Department of Philosophy, University of Oslo), Fall 1994. In English. Ariansen argues for an anthropocentric environmental ethic that finds it morally blameworthy to mistreat animals, although direct moral obligations are towards humans. We could not act morally directly towards plants or animals even if we very strongly wanted to. Sentient animals are, as far as we know, in a position where they are unable to see wilfully inflicted pain as different from any other occurrence of pain. It is therefore simply impossible to offer ethics to animals. They will not be able to understand what they are being offered. It is impossible to morally offend an animal, though clearly it is possible to inflict pain on them and in manners that morally offend humans.
Duties toward animals are in reality duties towards ourselves, though the way this is so is often misunderstood. We ought to have respect for the pain of others even if it is clear that the patient will never discover that the pain or loss inflict had a human origin. The morally relevant relationship between humans and non-humans is essentially dependent upon the scheme of morality as it unfolds in inter-human society. Although this scheme centers around the autonomy of the moral agent, it nevertheless presupposes a respect for the suffering of others, since in a world without suffering, lying and cheating would have no moral significance. A deep respect for the suffering of others imposes on humans a limited prima facie commitment also to animal welfare. Some case can also be made that the destruction of non-sentient and non-animate nature, such as a crystal, can be analogously treated. Ariansen teaches philosophy at the University of Oslo and is the author of Miljofilosofi: En Innforing (Environmental Philosophy: An Introduction).
Ariansen also has two forthcoming papers: (1) "Sustainability, Morality and Future Generations," given at a conference in Kyoto, Japan, sponsored by the Future Generation Alliance Foundation and the Kyoto Forum.

An English translation of the revision will appear in 1997. In addition to bringing forward some aspects of Ariansen's brand of anthropocentrism, the article also adresses briefly the "Parfit paradox", suggesting that the hypothetical question posed to future generations, whether they would rather exchange their plight for never having been born, rests on the mistaken understanding that this question is analogous to other questions about the preference of one state over another. The question breaks an "existential syntax". The state of never having been born cannot be evaluated by those who actually were born. Ariansen is in philosophy at the University of Oslo. (v7,#4)

In addition to all possible instrumental value, biological diversity also holds a constitutional value, in that it marks the constitutional framework for forming human identity, a framework which is prima facie protected against human destruction.

Arler, Finn, "Aspects of Landscape or Nature Quality," Landscape Ecology 15(2000):291-302. Landscape or nature quality has become a key concept in relation to nature policy and landscape planning. In the first part of the article it is argued that these qualities should not be conceived as mere expressions of private or subjective preferences. Even though there may not be any "objective" or "scientific" method dealing with them, they are still values which can be shared, reflected on, and discussed in a reasonable way. The connoisseurs are introduced as experienced persons, who are particularly capable of identifying different kinds of qualities, bridge builders between cognition and evaluation. The second part of the article deals with four central sets of landscape or nature qualities: qualities related to species diversity, qualities related to "the atmospheres" and characters of places, pictorial qualities, and qualities related to narrativity. It is argued that experience of these and similar qualities are an important part of human flourishing, and that they should therefore all have a prominent place in landscape planning. Arler is in philosophy, Arhus University, Denmark.

Arler, Finn. "Global Partnership, Climate Change and Complex Equality," Environmental Values:Environmental Values 10(2001):301-330. The prospect of climate change due to human activities has put the question of inter and intragenerational justice or equity in matters of common concern on the global agenda. This article will focus on the question of intragenerational justice in relation to these issues. This involves three basic questions. Firstly, the question of which distributive criteria may be relevant in the distribution of the goods and bads related to the increasing greenhouse effect. A series of criteria are discussed in relation to different understandings of the problem. The second question is which kind of relationship the global partnership is or should be considered to be in issues of common concern. It is argued that various understandings of the global partnership can be expected to result in the use of different criteria. This diversity leads us to the third question concerning the possibility of identifying an overall social ideal which can be used in cases where several different criteria may be useful. I shall discuss one such ideal in particular, namely the ideal of complex equality. In the concluding remarks it is argued that a distribution of emission quotas to countries in accordance with population size is a reasonable starting point for an equitable solution, although it involves various problems of application. Keywords: Climate change, greenhouse effect, equity, justice, global partnership, common concerns, distributive criteria, social ideals, complex equality.

Armstrong Buck, Susan. "Whitehead's Metaphysical System as a Foundation for Environmental Ethics." Environmental Ethics 8(1986):241 59. Environmental ethics would greatly benefit from an adequate metaphysical foundation. In an attempt to demonstrate the value of Whitehead's metaphysical system as such a foundation, I first discuss five central tenets of his thought. I then compare aspects of his philosophy with Peter Singer's utilitarianism, Tom Regan's rights theory, Aldo Leopold's land ethic, and Spinoza's system in order to indicate how a Whiteheadian approach can solve the difficulties of the other views as currently developed, and provide the basis for an environmental ethics which values individual entities in themselves and in their connectedness in a purposive natural order.

Armstrong-Buck, Susan, "Whitehead's Metaphysical System as a Foundation for Environmental Ethics," Environmental Ethics 8(1986):241-259. Intuitions about the intrinsic value of nature require a metaphysical basis, and here it is argued that Whitehead's metaphysic provides that basis. Without this metaphysical grounding of value, Leopold's land ethic commits the Naturalistic Fallacy (p. 258). (Katz, Bibl # 1)

Arnhart, Larry, Natural Right: The Biological Ethics of Human Nature. Albany, NY: State University of New York Press, 1998. 331 pages. How Darwinian biology supports an Aristotelian view of ethics as rooted in human nature. Defending a conception of "Darwinian natural right" based on the claim that the good is desirable, Arnhart argues that there are at least twenty natural desires that are universal to all human societies because they are based in human biology. The satisfaction of these natural desires constitutes a universal standard for judging social practice as either fulfilling or frustrating human nature, although prudence is required in judging what is best for particular circumstances. The familial bonding of parents and children and the conjugal bonding of men and women illustrates social behavior that conforms to Darwinian natural right. Slavery and psychopathy illustrate social behavior that contradict Darwinian natural right. The natural moral sense does not require religious belief, although such belief can sometimes reinforce the dictates of nature. Arnhart is in political science at Northern Illinois University.

Does environmental law reflect or encourage an environmental ethic? The Mono Lake (California) conflict, now twenty-five years old, offers an ideal case study of the role of environmental law and litigation in achieving environmental conservation and implementing an environmental ethic. The California Supreme Court's Mono Lake opinion is regarded as one of the ten most important environmental law cases of the twentieth century. It has been cited in over 100 judicial or administrative opinions. Environmental law matters but only as a component of a broader social and natural whole.

How courts persist in defining property rights according to the nature of the object of those rights. Three different theoretical perspectives that emphasize the importance of the object and person-object relationships in understanding property: environmental theories, personhood theories, and expectations theories. A web of interests is a superior metaphor, because the web of interests represents not only a set of interconnected relationships among persons who share interests (more than rights) in an object, whether tangible or intangible, but also a set of particular relationships persons have with objects that have particular characteristics relevant to property law. Ways in which the web of interests metaphor helps us see certain property issues differently than the bundle of rights metaphor--regulatory takings, ownership of ecologically valuable resources like land, water, and wildlife, and property issues in corporations or intellectual property.

Arrow, Kenneth, et al., "Economic Growth, Carrying Capacity, and the Environment," Science 268 (April 28, 1995): 520-521. Eleven authors, reporting from a Swedish conference; other authors include Robert Costanza, C. S. Holling, and David Pimentel. Economic policy typically ignores environmental concerns, or considers them tangential. But economic liberalization and other policies that promote gross national product are not substitutes for environmental policy. It is typically thought that in developing nations, environmental quality first degenerates and, with further development, later improves, a U-shaped curve. This is true for selected pollutants but not true for environmental quality as a whole. Economic policy needs to recognize carrying capacity and ecosystem resilience, though these are complex and dynamic, not simple and fixed relations. Economic liberation may require more, not less regulation, because the signals of ecosystem stress are frequently received after irreversible changes have already occurred, or are misinterpreted, or relocated to other nations, and there is little incentive under present policy for a more ecologically sustainable economics. Arrow is in economics at Stanford University; Costanza in ecological economics at the University of Maryland; Holling in zoology at the University of Florida; Pimentel in entomology, ecology, and systematics at Cornell University.
