The environment: between theory and practice

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


This book fills the gap between environmental philosophy and everyday environmental politics. The author puts forward a radical political theory of environmental protection, which binds together being environmentally friendly with community, deliberative democracy, and socialism. He argues that attempts to find 'independent' values in nature can be at odds with the contemporary political debates surrounding environmental politics. In the second half of the book, the author examines the environmental scope of several key political ideologies: liberalism, communitarianism, participatory democracy, and socialism.
