MetadataShow full item record
Rolston is widely recognized as the "father of environmental ethics," his writings making clear an ethics of nature, with intrinsic, instrumental, and systemic value. Ethics are for people but not only about people. Humans ought not always to put themselves first, but to put themselves in place in the biospheric community in which they reside. Only then will they become Homo sapiens, the "wise species."
