Angelika Krebs works on ethics and aesthetics, with a special interest in nature, love, literature, work, equality, and justice. At the center of her research is the notion of the good human life which includes, among other things, access to nature and art, to love and recognition through work. Her first book, the United Nations study Ethics of Nature from 1999, provides a critical taxonomy of environmental ethics. Angelika Krebs studied at Freiburg, Oxford, Konstanz, and Berkeley. She received her PhD in Philosophy from the University of Konstanz and completed her habilitation in Frankfurt University. Since 2001, she has been a full professor of philosophy at the University of Basel in Switzerland. In 2005/2006 she was Rockefeller Fellow at the Princeton Center of Human Values. At the Rachel Carson Center she will return to this field of research and work on the beauty of landscapes.
