Quote of the Week: Roger Scruton, “Green Philosophy”

Roger ScrutonEven if we thought, as Peter Singer and his followers seem to think, that there is a class of uniquely reasonable people who will be both adept at utilitarian reasoning and inherently predisposed to obey it, the futility of this belief is surely evident. If we are to solve our environmental problems through some piece of moral reasoning, it must be with an argument that motivates all normal people, and not one addressed solely to those armchair philosophers whose mastery of infinite moral space comes from being bundled in an academic nutshell.

▪ Roger Scruton, Green Philosophy – How to Think Seriously About the Planet (Atlantic Books, 2012) extract from page 193.
