Description - The Ethics of Nature by Celia Deane-Drummond

This accessible and timely book uses a Christian perspective to explore ethical debates about nature. It offers a detailed exploration of humanity's treatment of the natural world from a Christian perspective. It covers a range of ethical debates, including current controversies about the environment, animal rights, biotechnology, consciousness, and cloning. It sets the immediate issues in the context of underlying theological and philosophical assumptions. Complex scientific issues are explained in clear student-friendly language. The author develops her own distinctive ethical approach centred on the practice of wisdom. This book discusses key figures in the field, including Peter Singer, Aldo Leopold, Tom Regan, Andrew Linzey, James Lovelock, Anne Primavesi, Rosemary Radford Ruether, and Michael Northcott. The author has held academic posts in both theology and plant science.
