Virtue cannot be self-contained but must be in place. We actualize a uniquely human capacity for excellence when we respect non-human life. If this excellence really comes from appreciating otherness, then such human virtue is tributary to value in other forms of life. If an environmental virtue ethics is unable to dis-entwine human virtues from intrinsic values in nature, we have but a half truth, dangerous if taken for the whole.
