Resource Description
WHAT’S NATURE WORTH? Narrative Expressions of Environmental Values. Satterfield, Slovic. Based on written and oral interviews with a dozen prominent environmental writers, What’s Nature Worth? explores how the art of storytelling might bring new perspectives and insights to economic and policy discussions regarding the “value” of nature and the environment. The diverse points of view explored, and the writers’ insistence on careful interpretation, demonstrate that environmental values are complex, rich, and deeply felt—far more so than mainstream economic methodology would have us believe. There is general consensus among the contributors that the narrative form allows for an exploration of the richness of what it means to “value” nature. Following interviews, the authors provide examples of their work to demonstrate how indirect expressions of value, in the words of Allison Hawthorne Deming, have an emotional hue that can replenish the energy depleted by the coldness of cost-benefit arguments. #EE-13037.
