9780820322193: The Philosophy of Ecology: From Science to Synthesis

This is the first introductory anthology on the philosophy of ecology edited by an ecologist and a philosopher. It illustrates the range of philosophical approaches available to ecologists and provides a basis for understanding the thinking on which many of today's environmental ideas are founded. Collectively, these seminal readings make a powerful statement on the value of ecological knowledge and thinking in alleviating the many problems of modern industrial civilization.

Issues covered include:

  • the challenges of defining scientific ecology, tracing its genealogy, and distinguishing the science from various forms of "ecological-like" thinking
  • the ontology of ecological entities and processes
  • selected concepts of community, stability, diversity, and niche
  • the methodology of ecology (rationalism and empiricism, reductionism and holism)
  • the significance of evolutionary law for ecological science
