Abstract

Analyses whether the concept of “respect” can be applied to nature and the environment. Focuses on Paul Taylor’s book, “Respect for Nature”, in which he argues for an extension of respect to include plants and animals. Raises concerns over Taylor ‘s concept of nature, asking whether all living things have the same inherent worth. Suggests an alternative approach in the form of “care respect”.
