PHL 2110 - Environmental Philosophy

Credits: 4
What is nature? What is the human place in it? What kinds of changes can humanity make in an environment before it is no longer natural? Are practices like climate engineering and ecological restoration the same kind of thing? What is the proper role of science in environmental decision-making? How does the language we use to talk about nature alter the practices we perceive to be ethically responsible? This course will examine questions such as these in an effort to understand better the human relationship to nature and how best we might live within our native environments.
