Books authored or edited by Robin Attfield

My latest book, ‘Environmental Ethics: a Very Short Introduction’, was published by Oxford University Press in December 2018. This is a succinct, illustrated and reader-friendly introductory book, on sale at £7.99.  Very popular among students and the general public

My previous releases include ‘Wonder, Value and God’, published by Routledge with a copyright date of 2017. This book bestrides environmental ethics, philosophy of religion and theories of creativity.  Its cover has an amazing picture of the Grand Canyon; Leela and I have been there but sadly we probably didn't take this photo...
