The summer 2012 edition of the ISEE Newsletter has just been released. This edition includes a report on our annual conference and is accompanied by a slide show of some of our activities during the event. Matteo Andreozzi, ISEE’s Italy representative, provides an update on the state of environmental philosophy in his country, while Bill Forbes introduces the recently opened Center for a Livable World at his university this past April.
New to the newsletter, we offer reviews of four books and a movie. Another new section, inaugurated in the preceding issue, is our version of the academic white paper, which provides an overview of and developments in a particular research area, identifies topics or problems in need of further investigation, and provides a list of notable and recent publications. In this issue, Christopher J. Preston offers an update on social and ethical issues raised by geoengineering. Finally, the current bibliography is more than 35 pages in length.
