Lawrence Johnson advocates a major change in our attitude toward the nonhuman world. He argues that nonhuman animals, and ecosystems themselves, are morally significant beings with interests and rights. The author considers recent work in environmental ethics in the introduction and then presents his case with the utmost precision and clarity. Written in an attractive, nontechnical style, the book will be of particular interest to philosophers, environmentalists and ecologists.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... it will be eagerly read and debated by the growing number of philosophers, policy-makers, activists and others who recognize the monumental importance of moral questions relating to the environment.' Tom Regan, North Carolina State University
'On the green side of politics and philosophical thought, many want to claim that all living things should be protected from harm, irrespective of their value for human beings. They assert that plants, species, and ecosystems as a whole, have intrinsic moral value. I know of no better attempt to present a rational and argued defence of such a claim than Lawrence Johnson's A Morally Deep World.' Peter Singer, Monash University
