“Is Nature Ours? Ethics, Economics, and the Environment.”
Peter G. Brown - Selected Bibliography
(Downloaded from http://www.geog.mcgill.ca/faculty/brown/ 01/16/07)
On February 5 2007, Peter Brown, a professor in the Departments of Geography and Natural Resource Science at the McGill University School of Environment, lectured on "Becoming Citizens Worthy of the Earth." His arguement is that humans don’t own the Earth, and that the belief that we do is a significant cause of the environmental degradation that is overtaking us and many other species. He showed how this belief is rooted in our Judea-Christian and Greek heritages, and suggested that a more promising future lies in Albert Schweitzer’s idea of reverence for life.
In conjunction with the event, we have compiled a selected bibliography consisting of books, book reviews, journal articles and other resources by the speaker.
