Chapter

Abstract

In this chapter, we enquire how and why our society arrived at the point of monetary valuation, and the following contractualisation and commodification of natural functioning of ecosystems. We undertake a study of how much an economic valuation of ecosystems is encouraged and imposed in and through a broader neo-classical economics vision of nature and biodiversity. This study aims at answering the following central question: how the interests of nature could be (re-)thought and represented beyond the economic valuation of ecosystems, if at all?
