In Environmental Ethics and Process Thinking, Clare Palmer challenges the belief that the process thinking of writers like A. N. Whitehead and Charles Hartshorne has offered an unambiguously positive contribution to environmental ethics. She compares process ethics to a variety of other forms of environmental ethics, as well as deep ecology, and reveals a number of difficulties associated with process thinking about the environment.
