Theology, Creation, and Environmental Ethics
From Creatio Ex Nihilo to Terra Nullius
Winner of the John Templeton Award for Theological Promise, 2009
This book argues that the Christian doctrine of creatio ex nihilo (creation out of nothing) sets up a support system for a "logic of domination" toward human and earth others. Conceptually inspired by the work of theologian Catherine Keller and feminist philosopher of the environment Val Plumwood, it follows a genealogical method in examining how the concept of creation out of nothing materializes in the world throughout different periods in the history of the Christian West.
