Ecological Ethics

Ecological Ethics review ¸ eBook or Kindle ePUB Patrick Curry ☆ 3 free read characters ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Patrick Curry Ligious and secular and value Curry then examines the gradations of ecological ethics He discusses light green shallow or anthropomorphic ethics with the examples of stewardship lifeboat ethics and social ecology; mid green or intermediate ethics represented by animal liberationrights and biocentrism; and dark green deep or ecocentric ethics Particular attention is given to the various kinds of ecocentric ethics such as the Land Ethic The Gaia Hypothesis and Deep Ecology and its offshoots Deep Green The. I have very mixed feelings about this book On the plus side the Deep Green ethics Curry describes and supports are enormously appealing to someone like me who greatly values the natural world and wants to see its richness safeguarded while still caring for human and non human life I would love see such ethics widely adopted and humanity learning to live in harmony with the rest of nature something we re a long way from doingIt is also a serious work copiously referenced in which Curry looks at other forms of lighter green ethics to expose their shortfalls as well as extensively examining the implications of a Deep Green eco centred approach to how we live our lives Nor does he only consider the theoretical implications of the ethics he is writing about but also looks at practical steps that can be taken in a world where few will share such an outlook at least until forced by the reality of ecological collapse to do so He does have an occasional tendency towards impenetrable wordiness bordering on post modernist gobbledygook which sometimes makes it difficult to understand what point it is he is trying to make but by and large this is a clearly written bookYet it is also a very personal view of ecological ethics which means it is coloured by Curry s personal biases and that s where for me there are problems ones I sometimes see in the wider Green movement First is his tendency to sneer at science and deny its full ability to inform our understanding of the natural world He seems to fall into the trap of thinking that understanding destroys wonder and respect whereas the reverse is true He also criticises science for not providing meaning only facts which is a bit like criticising B for only providing building material not a finished house His disdain for inconvenient facts is particularly apparent in the chapter on population growth where he happily discounts the growing understanding of how to curb birthrates in order to push his own pet solution which smacks somewhat of authoritarianism Yet he is happy to declare that climate change is happening on the basis of scientific evidenceHe also seems to have an issue with rationalism although I m not clear exactly what his objections are he may see it as somehow allied with science and so tarred with the same brush Anyway it s an odd position to hold in a book where he makes rational arguments as to why we should choose Deep Green Ethics over any other sortHis final target for sniping is what he refers to as secularisation He does not use this in either of the established meanings of the word a state that shows no preference for any religion or a non religious approach to life in general Instead he seemly uses it to refer everything he does not like about the modern world His biggest beef with secularism is that he sees it as incompatible with the definition of spirituality he sees as a fundamental underpinning for Deep Green Ethics Yet in reality there is nothing a secular person would object to in his definition of the word for he uses it to refer to an awe and respect for nature something many secular people would have no problem with I was not surprised on further investigation to find that Curry appears to be a fan of astrology and has taught religious studiesTo be fair these are particular irritations because they conflict with my own worldview However there is a serious issue to be faced Early in the book Curry contrasts the three schools of ethics deontological conseuentialism and virtue ethics He highlights the well known drawbacks of the first two analysing how they fail to provide a basis for any ethical system that values the natural world in its own right rather than instrumentally But he skips over the eually well known drawback of virtue ethics who decides what the virtues are Not surprisingly it is virtue ethics that he sees as the foundation for the Deep Green ethics he is in favour of Essential to this for him is that such ethics are not centred on human needs Yet without some firm grounding it could eually be argued that what humans are doing to the planet is itself a natural process one all intelligent species may well be doomed to repeat and that breaking away from human centred timescales to geological ones the destruction we are wreaking is only a temporary glitch give it 25 to 30 million years and the planet will be as biodiverse at it ever was To value as he urges biodiversity and to preserve the richness of natural habitats as they exist now cannot really be justified other than by a call on human values and invocation of conseuentialism
