Skrócony opis:

This class discusses the role of theory and theorizing in environmental ethics. It surveys the major normative theories and value theories of analytic environmental ethics, including biocentric, holistic, anthropocentric, animal welfare, pluralistic, deontological, virtue ethical, and consequentialist theories. There will be an emphasis on examining the primary arguments for and against different theories, with attention to different forms or methods of argumentation. The class will also examine the purpose or function of ethical theorizing, both in general and as it pertains to environmental ethics in particular. Students will be encouraged to develop informed, well-reasoned views on which theories are and which are not well justified.
