In this course, you will develop tools for morally evaluating human-environmental interactions. We begin by considering what we owe to non-human animals and non-animal nature and how that implicates various social, political, and economic systems. We then turn our focus to socio-economic inequality and matters of environmental (in)justice at local and global scales, in particular regarding climate change. We then consider distinct moral challenges regarding intergenerational justice. From there, we step back to analyse the relationships between technology, policy, and environmental ethics. The course ends with an inquiry into moral emotions (like grief, anxiety, and hope), individual moral responsibilities, and their relation to social and environmental movements. 

Timetable

You can find the timetable on Datanose.
