Contemporary Philosophical Perspectives on the Environment

November 10, 2015, 7:00 PM

Free

Inside_the_Batad_rice_terraces-1The themes of anthropocentrism, the intrinsic value of nature, and an ecological worldview have preoccupied environmental philosophers for decades. How have philosophers considered these topics, and which of their conclusions are relevant today? Assistant Professor of Philosophy Keith Peterson will consider whether anthropocentrism motivates the concept of the Anthropocene and ask whether an ecological worldview is the best meta-scientific stance in this period of global climate disruption.
