Kathleen Dean Moore is a philosopher, environmental advocate, and writer.

As Distinguished Professor at Oregon State University, she lectured in environmental ethics and philosophy of law. But her growing alarm at the devastation of the planet led her to leave the university to speak out in defense of the lovely, reeling world.

Her most recent book, Great Tide Rising: Toward Clarity and Moral Courage in a Time of Planetary Change follows Moral Ground, testimony from the world’s moral leaders about our obligation to the future. Other books celebrate and explore the meaning of the wet, wild world of rivers, islands, and tidal shores –Riverwalking, Holdfast, Pine Island Paradox, Wild Comfort, and the forthcoming novel, Piano Tide.

She writes from Corvallis, Oregon, and Tidewater, Alaska.
