Wisconsin Univ., Madison. Inst. for Environmental Studies.; Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters, Madison.
The Human Values and the Environment Conference grew out of growing concern about the accelerating deterioration of global environmental quality and the danger of building of a value-free approach to how the environment should be managed. The conference's steering committee tailored the conference to consider some of humanity's religious and secular value systems in relation to environmental stewardship. Conference papers include: (1) "When the Dawn Comes Up Like Thunder: Looking Toward the Twenty-first Century" (Gretchen Schoff); (2) "Jewish Environmental Values: The Dynamic Tension Between Nature and Human Needs" (Saul Berman); (3) "At Home on the Earth: A Christian Ecological View of Human Beings" (Sallie McFague); (4) "Buddhist Views on the Environmental Crisis" (Robert Thurman); (5) "Taking Empirical Data Seriously: An Ecofeminist Philosophical Perspective" (Karen Warren); (6) "American Indian Philosophy and Perceptions of the Environment" (George Cornell); (7) "The Islamic View of the Environment" (Seyyed Hossein Nasr); (8) "The Road from Rio: A Christian Perspective" (Larry Rasmussen) (9) "On Generating Alternative Paradigms" (John Yoder); and (10) "Applying Environmental Values in the Home, Community, School, Workplace, and Political Arena" (Paul G. Hayes, Kathleen Falk, William Graham, and Mary Lou Munts).
