We are a part of nature yet all too often we consider ourselves apart from it; we put at arm’s length a problem in which we forget to include ourselves. We are caught up in a paradox and to extricate ourselves from it we must redefine our centrality by appealing to our sense of kinship. Being and Paradox does this by making the centre of our environmental ethics not “duty” but Care.
