Nelson, Robert, H (1997) Does 'Existence Value' Exist? The Independent Review 1997

Does 'Existence Value' Exist? Is an article written by Nelson, Robert, H in 1997. Nelson argues that putting value on an untouched wilderness is similar to the value one places over a sacred or religious area.Nelson argues that the overall use of the open spaced when viewed as a religious place could then be comparable by how many people it converts. This comparison of untouched wilderness to a religious place is quite the observation especially if applied to socio political issues such as devil's mountain.
