Finding Our Place in Nature

Finding Our Place in Nature argues that Aristotelian philosophy provides a much needed ethical foundation for the environmental sciences and for our daily commitment to practices of sustainability. Shearman challenges previously held interpretations of Aristotle’s value to the grounding of environmental ethics. He demonstrates that Aristotelian philosophy is a valuable and under-appreciated resource for any student-citizen who requires ethically persuasive reasons—both for pursuing environmental science in the first place and for grounding our social practices as citizens.

In the years after World War I, Robert Truesdell never spoke of his war experience, but he wrote more than 100 letters to his parents describing the details of his life in the service. The letters span a period of time starting with his arrival in the Fall of 1917 at Camp Wadsworth, South Carolina and concluding with his participation in the Victory March up Fifth Avenue in New York City in 1919. After Truesdell’s death, his daughter discovered the letters and carefully transcribed each one. The letters are accompanied by commentary on World War I prior to U.S.

New Essays on Adam Smith's Moral Philosophy

Adam Smith (1723-1790) was a Scottish philosopher who, with his good friend David Hume, can be ranked as the most famous of the 18th century 'Scottish Enlightenment' philosophers. He is most well-known for his 1776 book An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, perhaps the first modern work of economics; it was an instant success.
