AbstractThis book discusses how philosophers can potentially help resolve the moral and political dilemmas faced by environmental activists and policy makers by looking at how a philosophical thinking can take a more publicly engaged approach when looking at issues such as biodiversity, biomedical ethics, crop biology, and many other issues. Includes a number of case studies from around the world.
