Prof. Gottlieb is the author or editor of 20 books and more than 150 articles on environmentalism, religious life, contemporary spirituality, political philosophy, ethics, the Holocaust, feminism, and disability. He is internationally known for his work as a leading analyst and exponent of religious environmentalism, for his passionate and moving account of spirituality in an age of environmental crisis, and for his innovative and humane description of the role of religion in a democratic society.
The environmental crisis creates painful emotions and difficult moral dilemmas. Prof. Gottlieb’s latest book helps readers think through the value of nature and our treatment of animals; individual responsibility and collective political change; newfound dilemmas of reason and how to face environmental despair.
