|Abstract: ||This chapter outlines a framework of the issues addressed by geoethics. Starting from an etymological analysis of the word “geoethics,” we identify the cultural basis on which to expand the debate on geoethics, while also proposing for consideration by the scientific
community some questions that may guide the development of future research and practice in geosciences.
We attempt to define some fundamental points that, in our opinion, will strengthen geoethics and help its development. The goal of geoethics is to suggest practical solutions and provide useful techniques, and also to promote cultural renewal in how humans perceive and relate to the planet, through greater attention to the protection of life and the richness of the Earth, in all its forms.
As each science does, geoethics should also be able to present an image of the world, pointing out the manner in which it can be understood, investigated, designed, and experienced.|
