Book Excerpt! Earth and World: Philosophy After the Apollo Missions

In her brilliant new book, Oliver demonstrates precisely why philosophy could never be the same ‘after the Apollo Missions.’ She explores in an absolutely lucid and compelling way the ethical challenges and opportunities that emerged at the moment our planet—our environment, our home—was seen from outer space as that ‘blue marble.’

~Michael Naas, DePaul University
