LEAD 614 - Environmental Ethics/Justice


This course will provide an advanced study, in methodological terms, of the application of morals/ethics to environmental issues (understood in social, ecological and economic terms). As our approach to the environment necessarily involves judgments of the value and “correctness” of our manipulations and modifications to our surroundings, as these judgments are necessarily based on a viewpoint of our relationship to our surroundings and the value we place in them, and as these manipulations and modifications necessarily involve issues of fairness and generational equity, the course will provide you with a number of techniques and viewpoints from which you can develop your own ethical approach to environmental issues and evaluate options that will be placed before you in your lives.
