PHL 172 - Philosophy and the Environment.


(Formerly 272). (3) H.

Solving environmental problems ultimately involves an analysis of how we see the nonhuman world; our moral obligations to the earth and its other inhabitants depend upon our relation to them. Are animals and plants merely a means to human ends, or must we have “reverence” for all life? Can we call for the liberation of nonhuman animals, yet claim without contradiction that their interests should not outweigh ours?
