Environmental ethics is about how to live the good life in relationship to nature and in relationship to other beings who also depend on the natural world. This textbook aims to introduce environmental ethics to students in interdisciplinary environmental studies and sciences programs. It selects several important topics in the field and provides a general overview of the scholarly discussion among ethicists (and between ethicists and other disciplines) concerning those topics.
