Credits: 3

 

 

This seminar explores ethical dimensions of ecological management and research. Working from problems in the practice of biodiversity conservation, it treats a series of basic questions in environmental ethics and considers changing relations of science, policy, and cultural change. Moving from a problem-based approach, it inquires about the role of philosophical and religious questioning in the adaptive learning required for sustainability science.
