PHIL3208Ecological Ethics 3 ch
"Ecological Ethics" explores some of the key ethical issues concerning humanity's relationship to the earth. Dominant themes include deciding what has value, criteria for making good decisions, and moral principles for human behaviour toward the world. We shall become familiar with a range of perspectives and positions commonly found in Western environmental debates. The emphasis is on the relationship between theory and practice. Note: Students can receive credit for only one of PHIL 2206, PHIL 3206, and PHIL 3208. Although open to all students, this course does not count toward the Major or Honours requirements for Philosophy students.
