MetadataShow full item record
Rolston's 1988 book, Environmental Ethics: Values in and Duties to the Natural World, is generally recognized as the best available work in its field. Rolston presents a strong argument for a value-centered ecological ethic. He claims that intrinsic values objectively exist at the species, biotic community, and individual levels in nature and that these values impose on human obligations to species and their ecosystems.
