MetadataShow full item record
The "father of environmental ethics" has spent his life in what he calls a lover's quarrel with science and religion. "I had to fight both theology and science to love nature," Rolston said when he was named the recipient of the 2003 Templeton Prize for Progress Toward Research or Discoveries about Spiritual Realities. Rolston published the first article in a major philosophical journal to challenge the idea that nature is value-free and that all values stem from a human perspective.
