Humean Nature

Author: Neil Sinhababu
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 9780198783893
Release Date: 2017-03-23

Neil Sinhababu defends the Humean Theory of Motivation, according to which desire drives all human action and practical reasoning. Desire motivates us to pursue its object, makes thoughts of its object pleasant or unpleasant, focuses attention on its object, and is amplified by vivid representations of its object. These aspects of desire explain a vast range of psychological phenomena - why motivation often accompanies moral belief, how intentions shape our planning, how we exercise willpower, what it is to be a human self, how we express our emotions in action, why we procrastinate, and what we daydream about. Some philosophers regard such phenomena as troublesome for the Humean Theory, but the properties of desire help Humeans provide simpler and better explanations of these phenomena than their opponents can. The success of the Humean Theory in explaining a wide range of folk-psychological and experimental data, including those that its opponents cite in counterexamples, suggest that it is true. And the Humean Theory has revolutionary consequences for ethics, suggesting that moral judgments are beliefs about what feelings like guilt, admiration, and hope accurately represent in objective reality.

Visions of Nature

Author: Riyan J. G. van den Born
Publisher: LIT Verlag Münster
ISBN: 3825890082
Release Date: 2006
Genre: Philosophy

Visions of nature are the ideas that people hold of what nature is and how we should relate to it. These visions, besides being a dynamic cultural phenomenon worthy of scientific study for its own sake, are important for the design of democratically grounded landscape and nature policies. Drawing from a wide range of disciplines from the social sciences, the humanities and ecology, this volume reports on the growing scientific insights in visions of nature in Europe. Aspects covered are the long term dynamics of relationships between people and nature connected to land-use and urbanization, landscape preferences related to views on nature, the structure and distribution of images such as stewardship of nature, partnership with nature and deep ecology views, visions of nature as elicited in discussions with groups of adults and children, the role of emotional affinity to nature and of sudden disastrous events such as a river flood, the cultural construction of visions of nature through mass media and the ways in which ecologists translate their scientific visions of nature into criteria and images for policy making. Riyan J.G. van den Born is a researcher at Radboud University, Nijmegen (the Netherlands). Wouter de Groot is a researcher at the University of Leiden (the Netherlands). Rob H.J. Lenders is a researcher at Radboud University, Nijmegen (the Netherlands).

Crimes Against Nature

ISBN: 0520239091
Release Date: 2003
Genre: History

"This insightful and lucid book combines social with environmental history, enriching both. . . . Timely, eloquent, and provocative, Crimes against Nature illuminates contemporary struggles, especially in the West, over our environment."--Alan Taylor, author of William Cooper's Town "A compelling new interpretation of early conservation history in the United States. . . . Powerfully argued and beautifully written, this book could hardly be more relevant to the environmental challenges we face today."--William Cronon, author of Nature's Metropolis: Chicago and the Great West "What a powerful and yet subtle tale of the fraught encounter between the conservationists' desire to 'engineer' wilderness with the property regime of the modern state and the unique, local, 'moral ecologies' of those who resisted! Rarely has this level of originality, close reasoning, and historical texture been brought into such harmony while preserving the whiff of lived experience."--James C. Scott, author of Seeing Like a State
