Environmental Philosophy


The International Association for Environmental Philosophy (IAEP) was founded in 1997 to provide a forum for wide-ranging philosophical discussion of nature and the human relation to the natural environment. The Association embraces a broad understanding of environmental philosophy, including not only environmental ethics, but also environmental aesthetics, ontology, and theology, the philosophy of science, ecofeminism, and the philosophy of technology. Membership is open to all who share these interests and concerns.

For IAEP, environmental philosophy is both rigorous and engaged. It encourages joint meetings with other academic disciplines and supports interdisciplinary student internships. It welcomes a diversity of approaches to environmental issues, including the many schools of Continental philosophy, the history of philosophy, and the tradition of American philosophy. Annual membership includes a print subscripton + online access to Environmental Philosophy.
