Most decision making in environmental policy today is based on the economic cost-benefit argument. Criticizing the shortcomings of the market paradigm, Gilroy proposes an alternative way to conceptualize and create environmental policy, one that allows for the protection of moral and ecological values in the face of economic demands. Drawing on Kantian philosophy, Gilroy develops a paradigm for justice toward nature that integrates the intrinsic value of humanity and nature into the law. To test the feasibility of this approach, Gilroy applies it to six concrete cases, including environmental risk and wildlife preservation.
