Reals Without Realism, Ideals Without Idealism
This chapter examines the relevance of pragmatist John Dewey's ideas on environmental naturalism to recent philosophical debates among environmental philosophers such as Holmes Rolston III, Michael Zimmerman and Bryan Norton. It explains Dewey's thought that technology at its most general level is pervasive, but not ubiquitous, and that the most general level of technology is intimately related to philosophy. He also considers philosophy as a liaison officer with respect to various non-philosophical disciplines and the theory of the most general level of technology as logic.
