  1. Anthropocene Boosters and the Attack on Wilderness Conservation
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015
    A number of academics, commentators, and groups argue that humans have so completely modified the Earth that concepts such as 'wilderness' or 'nature' have become meaningless, and that therefore there is no point in talking about 'preserving' wilderness or natural areas. The idea of 'nature', they say, is just a human cultural construct. Those advancing these ideas use different progressive-sounding labels, such as "pragmatic environmentalists" or "green postmodernism," but their message is that we should forget about wilderness conservation and just get on with the business of 'managing' the planet for human benefit. Not surprisingly, corporate and industry leaders have been jumping on the bandwagon.

And hence, that they are as deserving of our care as human neighbours - if not more so.

  22. 'The creatures, too, must become free': Marx and the Animal/Human Distinction
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2000
    It has been claimed that Marx lacked respect for animals, thinking of them as inferior beings. Lawrence Wilde argues that, on the contrary, Marx had a respectful attitude towards animals and non-human nature in general. Marx’s attitude to the non-human is intrinsic to his humanistic outlook, grounded in an understanding of the human essence, for which maltreatment of animals is contrary to a communistic vision. Wilde approaches the question of Marx’s attitude to animals and nature within the wider context of Marx’s ethics.
