Great to hear from you, Patrick
 
And thanks for the photo - yes, it looks a great team. However, surely not
photographed in Australia?
 
Next due in London with a bit of time on Wed 7 Dec. My meeting at Church
House should finish about 2.45pm.

Thanks -- and for your text, rec'd in Austria, which really made me laugh
(albeit a bit wryly)! 

For no particular reason, I'll forward a photo I just rec'd of the group I
was on retreat with. A very, very nice group of people. 

Please let me know if you'll be in London with any time to spare, Nigel.

Warmly, P.

	Hello. I would be grateful if you would post this message (below) on
your
	list; it should interest your members...
	
	
	
	Ecological Ethics: An Introduction
	
	
	
	
	Patrick Curry
	
	 (Polity Press, 22 July 2011)
	 
	This book was first published in 2006. It was meant not only for
academics
	but anyone, including activists, who wants to understand ecological/
	environmental ethics better. Unlike nearly all other such books, its
	starting-point was that all value ultimately inheres not just in
human beings
	but in the Earth itself and all its creatures.
	 
	In this revised, updated and greatly expanded new edition, I argue
that a new
	and truly ecological ethic is both possible and urgently needed. With
this
	point in mind, the book introduces and discusses all the major
concepts
	needed to understand the full range of ecological ethics. 
	 
	Light green or anthropocentric ethics with the examples of
stewardship,
	lifeboat ethics and social ecology; the mid-green or intermediate
ethics of
	animal liberation/rights; and dark or deep green ecocentric ethics
are all
	discussed. Of the last kind, particular attention is given to the
Land Ethic,
	the Gaia Hypothesis, and Deep Ecology and its offshoots: Deep Green
Theory,
	Left Biocentrism and the Earth Manifesto. The new edition emphasises
the
	importance of virtue ethics and its close relationship with
ecocentrism.
	Other chapters discuss ecofeminism, green citizenship, green ethics
as
	post-secular, moral pluralism and pragmatism, and human population in
the
	light of ecological ethics. 
	 
	In this edition, all chapters have been updated and are joined by new
	discussions, from an ecocentric perspective, of climate change, wind
power
	and energy, capitalism, sustainable economies, green education,
traditional
	ecological knowledge, the treatment of animals as an ecocentric
issue,
	vegetarianism, the food system, Buddhism, and animism as integral to
a green
	virtue ethic.  
	 
	This comprehensive and wide-ranging book offers a radical but
critical
	introduction to the subject which puts ecocentrism and the critique
of
	anthropocentrism back at the top of the ethical, intellectual and
political
	agenda. It will be of great interest to students and activists, and
to a
	wider public.

	Lastly, please forward this message to anyone you think might be
interested! 
	 
	Thank you very much,
	 
	Patrick
