PHIL 2400 - Environmental Philosophy

Hours: 4
This is a course that investigates ethical, political, and metaphysical questions concerning the environment and human beings’ relationship to it. Issues in environmental ethics are becoming ever-more pressing as contemporary society confronts its environmental problems. This course will investigate philosophical views on the value of nature, the moral status of animals, our responsibilities to preserve species and natural objects (like trees), and our obligations to future generations. Among other topics that may be discussed include population explosion, world hunger, pollution, economics and the environment, and energy and global justice.
Notes: This course may be used as a substitute for the INST Reflection and Responsibility (INST 2200’s) requirement.
