Holmes Rolston III 1932- / by Jack Weir (Japanese)
Holmes Rolston is widely recognized as the "father of environmental ethics" as an academic discipline. More so than any other, he has shaped the essential nature, scope and issues of the discipline. The following six principles are basic to his work: 1. The Homologous Principle: Follow Nature; 2. The Value-Capture Principle; 3. The Organic Principle: Respect for Life; 4. The Species Principle: Preserve 'Forms' of Life; 5. The Ecosystemic Principle; 6. The Three 'Environments' Principle: Urban, Rural and Wilderness (or, the Nature-Culture Principle).
