This course surveys rights- and justice-based justifications for ethical positions on the environment. It examines approaches such as stewardship, intrinsic value, land ethic, deep ecology, ecofeminism, Asian and aboriginal. It explores issues such as obligations to future generations, to nonhumans and to the biosphere.
Approach: Cross-Cultural Analysis (CC), Critical Interpretation (CI);, ; Haverford: Humanities (HU)
This 360 cluster, comprised of courses in philosophy, history (East
Asian Studies), and economics, will look at the many environmental
problems and issues that beset our contemporary world. We will explore
the environment from the perspective of several disciplines:
philosophy (both "Western" and "Eastern"), economics, history,
politics, and natural science. Our readings, class discussion, and
student research will bring these different disciplinary perspectives
to bear on specific environmental questions. Experts in the science,
economics, and politics of these questions will come to campus and
visit the classes. The cluster will concentrate particularly (but not
exclusively) on the environmental problems of China and study how
China is dealing with them. Students and faculty will travel to China
(tentatively March 8-22) to experience the environmental problems
first hand and to meet with leading experts on these issues, both
researchers and officials. Applications due November 6th: https://brynmawr.wufoo.com/forms/360a-preregistration-china-and-the-environment/
