Title Living with Other Beings : a virtue-oriented approach to the ethics of species protection
Author(s) Melin, Anders
Date 2013
English abstract
Concern for rare species has been an important part of environmental activism since the first environmental movements started in the nineteenth century. Now the protection of rare species is a part of the political goal to preserve biodiversity. This book discusses ethical issues connected with the protection of rare species from a virtue-ethical perspective. It explores the following two questions: what constitutes a good human life together with other species and how can it be realized? The book takes account of both Aristotelian and Christian virtue ethics.
