Ethics and the Environment 2 (1):25 - 41 (1997)

Abstract
This is a response to Val Plumwood's critique of Plato and an overview of the way in which Plato provides a viable environmental vision. This vision sees the realm of nature as rooted in the realm of logos, and human beings as sojourners who are nonetheless integral parts of nature and whose vocation is to act as mediators between the two realms thereby bringing nature into even greater participation in logos. To fulfill the human vocation, one must come to an awareness of the logos by purging oneself of the sham values which permeate society and distort one's understanding of reality.
