PHL 266 Environmental Ethics
(Also GEG 266)
4 hours; 4 credits
This course provides a critical forum to examine the roots and results of our attitudes toward the environment. How should we view the apparent connections between pollution, economic development, and poverty; what (if anything) do we owe future generations; how should we consider non-human animals in the environment; is there justice or injustice in environmental civil disobedience? The course will draw on issues related to philosophy, geography, biology, economics, geology, and political science, and will challenge the exercise of global consciousness in “real-world” terms.
