PHIL 287: Environmental Ethics

Kyle Thomsen

Given the contemporary focus on global warming, carbon footprints, and “going green”, the topic of environmental ethics is more important than ever before. Are special interest groups truly pushing us towards environmental disaster with their near-sighted selfishness? Are alarmists needlessly compromising human interests in the face of an imaginary threat? This course will look at various philosophical and ethical views on the relationship between humans and the natural world. Topics will include: the use and abuse of natural resources, pollution, and animal rights.
