Humans, Animals, Nature


PHIL 215
Fall 2014
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: ENVS 215
Certificates: Environmental Studies
Course Cluster: Animal Studies

A variety of important issues are central to understanding the complexity of relationships between humans, nonhumans, and the rest of nature. The goals of the course are to help you to think critically, to read carefully, to argue well, and to defend your own reasoned views about the moral relations between humans, animals, and nature. This year we will focus most of the semester on human relationships with other animals, with a particular emphasis on the complexity of captive animals and the problems of extinction.
