In this study, Clare Palmer challenges the popular conception that process thinking offers an unambiguously positive contribution to the philosophical debate on environmental ethics. She critically examines the approach to ethics which may be derived from the work of process thinkers such as A. N. Whitehead and Charles Hartshorne, pointing out questions about justice and respect for individual integrity which are raised. With these questions in mind, she compares process ethics to a variety of other forms of environmental ethics, as well as deep ecology. This comparative study reveals a number of difficulties associated with process thinking about the environment. Although some reformulations of process philosophy in the light of these difficulties are offered, the author suggests that a question mark should remain over the contribution which process philosophy can make to environmental ethics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
she has produced a readable book that provides a solid survey both of process thinkers who have addressed environmental issues and of several leading options for environmental ethics ... Palmer's challenge to proces theology is serious and must be met by process thinkers who wish to construct a workable environmental ethic. * Randall C.Morris, Journal of Theological Studies, Vol.52, No.1, April 2001 *
Palmer provides rigorous and much needed philosophical criticism of this aspect of process thought./ David Fergusson, University of Aberdeen/ The Expository Times/ March 1999.
