Course Description:

This course deals with ethical issues having to do with humanity's relationship to the environment. The course is divided into an introductory segment followed by three units. The first unit is about “anthropocentric” approaches to the environment, which view humans as the only thing of moral value. The second unit looks at attempts to expand the realm of moral standing to animals, species, life, and even nature itself. The third unit addresses corporate and governmental responsibilities, if any, to the environment.
