Item Type: Book
Additional Information: a) Environmental concern and education b) Philosophical investigation c) Asks how education should respond to environmental concerns and argues that a right relationship with nature lies at the heart of environmental education. It shows how understanding this relationship poses challenges to our conceptions of nature, rationality, value and human being, which in turn raise fundamental questions about the nature, purpose and practice of education. d) The monograph of some 80,000 words was commissioned by the Philosophy of Education Society GB as a special issue of its Journal and in part developed and integrated themes initiated in previously published papers. It was subsequently published as a book by Blackwell. Its content has been discussed in a number of places, e.g. by D W Postma 'Why Care About Nature?' (Netherlands, Springer, 2006), and as one of six key perspectives in a briefing paper (2006) on performance indicators for The Sustainable Development Commission. Peer reviewed Sole author
