Environmental Values

Ruralism or Environmentalism?

Avner de-Shalit

Environmental Values 5(1996): 47-58. doi: 10.3197/096327196776679393

Recent works on the historical sources of the environmental movement neglect environmental philosophy. They therefore fail to distinguish between two different currents of thought: ruralism - the romantic glorification of rural life; and environmentalism - a philosophy which is based on scientific information, anti-speciesism and respect for all organisms. These works, therefore, mistakenly identify 'political ecology' with right-wing ideologies.

KEYWORDS: Ruralism, environmentalism, biocentrism, greens
