Environmental Philosophy Work

My scholarly work in environmental philosophy emerged from my PhD work in the Faculty of Environmental Studies at York University. An explanation of the ecophenomenological literature informing this work is found in a comprehensive paper I wrote, titled "Ecological Phenomenology" (clicking on this link opens a Word document).
