Laura Hartman has done something extraordinary: she produced a volume on comparative religious ethics whose organization replicates the type of productive dialogue at the core of this enterprise. When you add that the chapters are written in an accessible and engaging style, and this is the first comparative religious ethics collection that focuses on the non-human world, it is a must read for all ethicists. * Elizabeth Bucar, author of Pious Fashion: How Muslim Women Dress *
In this fascinating, timely, and suggestive collection, the contributors extend the concept of 'flourishing' beyond human-centered virtue ethics to the wider world of ecology and environmental ethics. As a work of comparative religious ethics, it exemplifies a novel and welcome approach to cross-cultural analysis: the chapters each combine specialist attention to particular cases in context, with ongoing constructive dialogue around important aspects of human, animal, and environmental flourishing. * Aaron Stalnaker, Associate Professor of Religious Studies, Indiana University *
