From the Foreword on, this book challenges—from multiple perspectives—the prevailing ‘modern’ paradigm of ecological and social individualism. Individual affluence is not sustainable in a milieu of widening human deprivation and ecological collapse; nor will your well-meaning voluntary individual self-restraint stanch poverty, pollution, and climate change. Only with a visceral collective recognition that we are all embedded absolutely and inextricably in complex, interdependent eco-social networks—accompanied by determined collective action—will there emerge genuine ecologies of human flourishing.—J. Baird Callicott, author of Beyond the Land Ethic: More Essays in Environmental Philosophy, University Distinguished Research Professor, Department of Philosophy and Religion Studies, University of North Texas

With its splendid list of learned and wise contributors, and its focus on perhaps the single most important religious, moral, and political question of our time, this volume makes a highly significant contribution. We are fortunate to have it.—Roger S. Gottlieb, author of A Greener Faith, Engaging Voices: Tales of Morality and Meaning of Age of Global Warming, Professor of Philosophy, Department of Humanities and Arts, Worcester Polytechnic Institute
