This volume is the summation of nearly three decades of work by a leading figure in environmental ethics and bioethics. The 22 papers are diverse, but together tell a unified story about various aspects of the morality of our relationships to animals and to nature. Jamieson's direct and accessible essays aim to convince sceptics that thinking about these relations offers great intellectual reward, and his work here sets a challenging, controversial agenda for the future.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Jamieson's book challenges both the philosopher and the non-philosopher to explore what is involved in a consistent set of beliefs about how humans relate to animals and nature. He often shows that this consistency takes us to conclusions that many of us will be uncomfortable with. . . . All of his articles, two of which he has co-authored with Marc Bekoff and one with Tom Regan, exhibit a commendable clarity of writing, close argumentation and an accessible style. . . . Whether or not we fully agree with him on what constitutes moralitys progress, his book certainly constitutes progress in our understanding of morality. * Biology and Philosophy *
[Jamieson's] chapter-two defense of applied ethics is the best anywhere. Every philosopher should read it ... profound and thought-provoking insights ... Because Jamieson's book relies on his rich understanding of a wealth of literature, he is able to bring new arguments for animal liberation out of old texts that others may have misread or left unread ... Still another strength is Jamieson's witty, common-sensical, and accessible prose ... because of his blend of philosophical argument, insight, and good prose, Jamieson's volume is one to be enjoyed by students, philosophy professors, animal-rights activists, and thoughtful policymakers. * Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
Dale Jamieson has produced ground-breaking work over several decadesJamieson's work constitutes a significant contribution to both the theory and practice of environmental ethics. * Hallvard Lillehammer, Studies in History and Philosophy of the Biological and Biomedical Sciences *
Jamieson's style of philosophical analysiscombines commonsense thinking and rigid philosophical analysis and is scientifically informedhis philosophical essays are exceptionally accessible to and interesting for philosophers and non-philosophers alike. In brief, what one may expect of environmental ethics at its best. * Markuu Oksanen, Environmental Values *
