Living with Other Beings

A virtue-oriented approach to the ethics of species protection

By Anders Melin

Concern for rare species has been an important part of environmental activism since the first environmental movement began in the 19th 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? How can this be realized? The book takes account of both Aristotelian and Christian virtue ethics. (Series: Studies in Religion and the Environment / Studien zur Religion und Umwelt - Vol. 9)
