Summary

"Kealey's critique of utilitarian and deontological approaches to environmental ethics is insightful. And his blending of Eastern and Western traditions to arrive at a genuinely adequate framework for environmental ethics is novel and creative." -- Ramakrishna Puligandla

Using the psychohistorical schema of Jean Gebser, Kealey analyzes the positions of "environmental ethicists" and concludes that the first four of Gebser's structures of consciousness are inadequate to meet the present crisis. Drawing on Plotinus, Aurobindo, and Max Scheler, Kealey outlines an adequate "fully integral ecological ethic."

"This work provides a conceptual structure drawing the contemporary environmental crisis into dialogue with neoplatonism and Asian thought, accomplished in the context of a comprehensive psychohistorical approach. It uses classical insight to inform a troublesome modern situation. The ideas are provocative, well documented, and controversial." -- Christopher Chapple

Daniel A. Kealey is Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy and Religion at Towson State University.
