Theology, Creation, and Environmental Ethics: From Creatio Ex Nihilo to Terra Nullius
Taylor & Francis, Mar 19, 2009 - History - 248 pages
Winner of the John Templeton Award for Theological Promise, 2009
This book argues that the Christian doctrine of creatio ex nihilo (creation out of nothing) sets up a support system for a "logic of domination" toward human and earth others. Conceptually inspired by the work of theologian Catherine Keller and feminist philosopher of the environment Val Plumwood, it follows a genealogical method in examining how the concept of creation out of nothing materializes in the world throughout different periods in the history of the Christian West.
