Environmental Values

Deep Ecology as an Aesthetic Movement

Tony Lynch

Environmental Values 5(1996): 147-160. doi: 10.3197/096327196776679357

Many deep ecologists call for a 'new ecological ethic'. If this ethic is meant to be a moral ethic, then deep ecology fails. However if deep ecology is interpreted as an aesthetic movement, then it is both philosophically coherent and practically adequate.

KEYWORDS: Deep ecology, morality, aesthetics, nonanthropocentrism
