Semester Herbstsemester 2021
Angebotsmuster Jedes Herbstsemester
Dozierende Barbara Schmitz (barbara.schmitz@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt The central questions of environmental ethics concern the moral obligations we have towards protecting our natural environment. How can these obligations be rationally justified? What do they include? Physiocentric approaches suppose that the value of protecting our environment is not just based on human interests. In contrast, anthropocentric approaches completely explain the obligation to conserve the nonhuman nature by reference to the interests of human beings who for example have a need for an undestroyed environment as an economical ressource or as an area for their relaxation. These different approaches will be discussed in the first part of the course.
Sustainable development is aiming at the protection of the economical and ecological conditions of the good life of future generations. By serving this goal environmental ethics becomes part of an ethics concerning our responsibility for the future. In the second part of the course different readings of this responsibility will be discussed. In this context, it will also be examined in which way our obligation to protect our environment can be justified by the idea of justice between present and future generations.
