Written by one of the instrumental figures in environmental ethics, Nature as Subject traces the development of an ethical policy that is centered not on human beings, but on itself. Katz applies this idea to contemporary environmental problems, introducing themes of justice, domination, imperialism, and the Holocaust. This volume will stand as a foundational work for environmental scholars, government and industry policy makers, activists, and students in advanced philosophy and environmental studies courses.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The reader will be moved well beyond the ordinarily repetitively treated environmental issues of saving a particular organism, recycling, or saving a river or a rain forest. -- J. N. Muzio * CHOICE *
Eric Katz is a leading contributor to the new environmental philosophy. He goes beyond environmental ethics as applied traditional ethics to articulate a nature-centered philosophy that can be a foundation for the reform not only of individual action and public policy but also of science and technology. -- Carl Mitcham, Pennsylvania State University
Katz has been influential in environmental ethics for two decades and this collection of his leading essays is most welcome . . . The result is both more penetrating analysis and increased conviction regarding our direct moral consideration and respect for nature. -- Holmes Rolston III, Colorado State University
This book offers original insights to those with a serious interest in environmental ethics and is appropriate for undergraduate courses on the subject. -- Robert L. Grant, St. Ambrose University * Religious Studies Review *
