The main theme of volume 4 of Eco-ethica is
Ethics and Politics. In the first and second part,
the authors examine the sometimes conflictual relationship
between ethics and politics from an eco-ethical perspective.
They investigate how our conceptions of both ethics and
politics have been shaped historically as well as by today’s
technological conjuncture.

The third part continues the discussion of French
philosopher Paul Ricoeur (1913 – 2005) begun in volume
3. The essays here focus on how his conception of the
connections and differences between ethics and politics led
him to embrace certain paradoxes in politics and forced him
to become suspicious of apolitical thinking.
