Skrócony opis:

Human concern for the environment is a contemporary fact developed from ideas of the late modernity. Also environmental ethics is a young branch of philosophy, “invented” in the second half of the 20th Century. First, the class will examine both the philosophical roots and the scientific roots of environmental ethics. Thinkers like H.D. Thoureau and A. Leopold are important sources for contemporary philosophical discussion about human responsibility towards the environment. On the scientific side, environmental ethics has been made possible by the scientific work of C. Darwin and the subsequent establishment of ecology as a science into the framework of biology after Darwin. Then the class will present the most important approaches of environmental ethics since its birth in the second half of 20th Century from the awareness of the human effects on the environment caused by the “ecological crisis”.
