Moral Ecologies: A Relational Approach to Environmental Ethics

Fully considering questions of environmental ethics requires putting the interconnectedness of human beings with one another and with the broader world at the center of ethical analysis. Drawing on philosophical traditions from early Confucian texts to contemporary feminist ethics, this book develops a relational approach to environmental ethics that focuses on the character and quality of human relations to one another and the natural world. The grant will support the research and writing of the book’s first chapter.
