ABSTRACT: Environmental Ethics has become a burgeoning new discipline of applied

ethics as a new phase of proliferation and expansion concerning the dilemmic state of

contemporary destruction. It is indeed well known that the emergence of environmental

ethics as a justifiable field of philosophical concern about the environmental problem has

opened a new panorama in the domain of ethics in general, but the main philosophical

issue and debate in the field of environmental ethics is whether natural environment has

intrinsic value or what is the importance of arguing for intrinsic value of non-human

beings/objects. My contention is that the concept of intrinsic value is necessary in the

discourse of environmental ethics. We should at least sometimes think of some parts of

the natural world as appropriate objects of awe, reverence, respect and love. We should

not reserve this role to our emotional lives for human alone. I aim to extend this

discussion on moral considerability to explore the broader question of moral significance

focussing theoretical issues in ethics that I hope practically significant.
