The Human Relationship to Nature: The Limit of Reason, the Basis of Value, and the Crisis of Environmental Ethics by Matthew R. Foster

Environmental problems compel examination of three contrasting patterns of moral reasoning concerning the human relationship to nature: the currently implemented Progress Ethic, and the proposed alternatives of a Stewardship Ethic and Connection Ethic. But none of these deliver all they promise, whether in theory or practice or both, because all dubiously presume that moral reason is commensurate with nature, and that the value of natural entities is an intrinsic property. Matthew R. Foster argues that resolution of this crisis requires reaching beyond the limit of reason, and acknowledging value to be not a noun, but a verb about the incomparable relation of two entities.
