Ev308 Environmental Ethics 4 credits
This course is a search for environmental ethics. Both the economic-based and “biocentric” positions are investigated, as are the relationships among all living and nonliving components of the environment. Valuing is an integral part of the search. This course moves toward a sense of environmental ethics that can be applied to government policy, commerce, and industry and individual behavior. It ends with a study of ethical principles surrounding the concept of sustainable development.
