Are any nonhuman animals conscious? Why, if at all, should we strive to conserve natural environments? In what sense are we parts of nature? In this book, Simon James draws on a range of philosophical and literary sources to develop original answers to these and other questions, setting out a refreshingly new approach to environmental philosophy.
SIMON P. JAMES has degrees in biology, history and philosophy of science and philosophy. He is currently a Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at Durham University, UK. He is the author of Zen Buddhism and Environmental Ethics (2004) and, with David E. Cooper, Buddhism, Virtue and Environment (2005).
