Chapter 18: Keeping faith with life

Prue Taylor

Abstract

This chapter places Engel’s scholarship on the Earth Charter into a historical and biographical context that is vital for understanding his thought. It is also based on the premise that understanding something of Engel’s intellectual history is important for grasping his views on the development of the Earth Charter, the history of environmental social ethics and conservation, and how humanity might progress global ethics into the future.
