A Reply to M. Marangudakis
Helton, Nicole D.; Helton, William S.
Journal of Moral Education, v37 n2 p249-250 Jun 2008
In his reply to our paper Marangudakis raises important points regarding: (1) the measurement of environmental values; and (2) potential risks of deep ecological views to human welfare. We definitely agree that a more rigorous approach to the measurement of environmental values is needed. While the extent of belief in deep ecology remains an open question, we believe Marangudakis may be overly simplifying deep ecology and, for that matter, Christian world views.
