"This book is striking in its originality. It aims at a very ambitious goal: the development of an ethical theory that encompasses the domains of human relationships, nonhuman animals, and the rest of nature, including the built environment. Remarkably, it succeeds in achieving this goal."--Andrew McLaughlin, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, Lehman College, City University of New York "This book is a knock-out! It is, as the author says, the first of its kind to develop an ethical framework to encompass everything of moral significance in our world. Difficult and complex ideas are explained in an accessible style. This is a truly original work and, I venture to say, will become a classic." Alastair Gunn , Department of Philosophy, University of Waikato, New Zealand "This is a very ambitious, very original attempt to provide ethical principles of human relations with the natural, the social, and the humanly built worlds. It is written in accessible language, forcefully and carefully argued, and makes a serious and very important contribution to philosophy." Roger S. Gottlieb , author of A Greener Faith: Religious Environmentalism and Our Planet's Future

Reviews

[O]ne is unavoidably impressed with the remarkable extent to which [Fox] has succeeded in producing a genuinely original and internally consistent ethical theory from square one...[A] strikingly wide-ranging and novel work, which combines rigorous argument with occasional scholarly bombshells. -Piers H.G. Stephens, Organization and Environment
The idea of a general ethical theory is a powerful one that at first appears beyond the scope of any book, let alone one readable by the intelligent layperson. Yet Fox elegantly and lucidly makes a case for just such a system and explains how it may be practically deployed. -Michael J. Ostwald, Nexus Network Journal
