Environmental pragmatism and environmental philosophy: a bad marriage!
2010 (English)In: Environmental Ethics, ISSN 0163-4275, E-ISSN 2153-7895, Vol. 32, no 4, 405-415 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Environmental pragmatists have presented environmental pragmatism as a new philosophical position, arguing that theoretical debates in environmental philosophy are hindering the ability of the environmental movement to forge agreement on basic policy imperatives. Hence, they aim to lead environmental philosophers away from such theoretical debates, and toward more practical—and pragmatically motivated—ones. However, a position with such an aim is not a proper philosophical position at all, given that philosophy (among other things) is an effort to get clear on the problems that puzzle us.
