Summary

"Brian G. Henning argues that the process philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead has the potential to make a significant contribution to environmental ethics. Additionally inspired by classical American philosophers such as William James, John Dewey, and Charles Sanders Peirce and environmental philosophers such as Aldo Leopold, Peter Singer, Albert Schweitzer, and Arne Naess, Henning develops an ethical theory that brings fresh perspectives to both environmental ethics and process philosophy." "By systematically developing a conception of individuality that embraces equally the microscopic world of subatomic events and the macroscopic world of ecosystems, The Ethics of Creativity correctly emphasizes the well-being of wholes, while not losing sight of the importance of the unique centers of value that constitute these wholes."--BOOK JACKET.
