Can aesthetics and ethics be integrated for the good of
habitats, places and spaces? How can arts widen our
perception of nature and deepen environmental ethics? Should the
political meaning of a landscape be defined
solely in terms of its economic and ecological values?

Questions like these are explored from the angles of arts, environmental
ethics, ecology, religious studies, theology, art history and philosophy.
The book catalyzes the reflection about the aesthetic and spiritual
dimension in the environmental humanities, and it offers transdisciplinary
insights into the challenge of sustainability and ongoing changes in the
society and our environment.
