Description :
The primary aim of this article is to clarify the contemporary tensions between postmodern and environmental thought, and to facilitate a better understanding of environmental problems and of the inter-relationships between science, society and nature. The A. argues that there are difficulties in using poststructuralist epistemologies for the analysis of environmental problems. He shows how ideas drawn from critical realism can help to recognize where ontological and epistemological issues have become blurred.
