add more about stewardship[edit]

please add more information about stewardship.......because its really important...... —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:21, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

my recent big revert[edit]

I've been reverting massive (self?-)promotion of the deleted Charles S. Herrman (user:Mr man1951) in many wikipedia articles. This one, being a real mess of original research and disambiguation, was not salvageable after intervention of Mr man. I will try and untangle the existing mess here a bit later.

Environmental stewardship[edit]


I just wanted to let all those working on this stub- article that I'm going to begin adding to and editing the section on environmental stewardship. I'd really appreciate any help or suggestions. The topic of stewardship ethics in environmental philosophy is broad and needs a much better treatment than it received here. Dyname42 (talk) 18:19, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

  • I wonder if there may be value in merging this article, Stewardship, with the above-referenced article, Environmental stewardship. May be better to have a single, comprehensive article, rather than two beginning ones. Kind regards, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 13:16, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
    • I agree with that, although the section on "Resilience-based ecosystem stewardship" seems like technobabble to me. bd2412 T 14:09, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
    • Addendum: I would also merge in Stewardship theory. bd2412 T 14:20, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
    • I have now tagged Stewardship theory for merging into this article. bd2412 T 16:56, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

Split suggestion[edit]

The term "stewardship" is nothing but, term, used in different contexts. There nothing in common among the sections beyound the disctionary definition the the term. Therefore the article is prime for spitting/disambiguation. Lorem Ip (talk)

Stewardship is not an ambiguous term.[edit]

Rather, it is a broad concept, like Honor or Duty. Such concepts are not always easy to write an article about, but they are nonetheless unambiguous, because there is a general understanding of what the term implies, no matter what area it is applied to. bd2412 T 13:14, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

The article Duty suffers the same problem as stewardship and principle: A dicdef + chaotic collection of the application of the term in particular areas. This is because nobody took pain to search for sources which discuss the subject in its generic meaning. Rather people just throw in bits and pieces in COATRACKish style, probably indiscriminately googling the word "stewardship" :-) Staszek Lem (talk) 19:33, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

IMO it is better to have a general framework for articles about various ethical concepts:

  • Intro/dicdef/etymology
  • History/evolution of the concepts, starting from antiquity
  • Smart people writing on the concept
  • Usage cases of the concept in particular areas (a bunch of subsections, possibly using WP:SUMMARY style)

...Anything else? (Oh, yes, "In Popular Culture"; how did I forget it? :-) Staszek Lem (talk) 19:37, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

Proposed merge with Environmental stewardship[edit]

Two beginning articles; would be stronger for now to have a single, more comprehensive article. Can be split later, if/ as warranted. DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 17:50, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

What about Environmental stewardship (England) ? Staszek Lem (talk) 19:25, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

  • That article looks specific to England; in fact, it looks like a formal government programme. Best left separate, in my view. Thanks, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 20:47, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
  • Don't merge. We'll confuse the historic term with a modern theory. Italic text
