Philosophical reflection upon issues arising from a consideration of environmental problems confronting humanity. Topics which might be considered include whether we have obligations to future generations, other species, and ecosystems. If ethical concepts should be extended to include nature, are there viable alternatives to our current practices of using, exploiting, and dominating nature?
