Human dimensions of invasive alien species in philosophical perspective : towards an ethic of conceptual responsibility

Hattingh, Johan P. (IUCN, 2001)

Book Chapter

Characterized by both globalization and the so-called postmodern conditon, this context confronts us on the one hand with the homogenizing effects of the dominant ideology of advancec industril societies and on the the other hand with a loss of faith in the grand narratives of modernity.
