Environmental Ethics | Spalding University Catalog

PHIL-160: Environmental Ethics

3 credit hours

This course studies the ethical relationships between human beings and the natural environment, including the living nonhuman individuals that populate and constitute it, and nonliving natural resources. It involves developing a proper and clear understanding of the human–nature relationship, identifying the goods and values that are part of or emerge from that relationship, determining the norms (rules/ principles) that those goods and values justify, and applying those norms to generate guidance on environmental
issues and interactions. This course can be used to satisfy University Studies requirements.
