CLIMATE JUSTICE: THEO & ACTION (CERS-4450)

Credits:3

This intensive seminar course will use methodologies of Christian ethics and interaction with local climate justice activists to examine: 1) the climate crisis as a moral matter in relationship to various forms of structural injustice including injustice grounded in race/ethnicity, class, and colonialism, and 2) pathways for addressing the climate crisis with hope. Special attention will be given to global–local connections and perspectives from marginalized communities. Methodological resources include liberation ethics, Earth ethics, post-colonial perspectives, eco-feminist perspectives, and eco-hermeneutics. The course involves reading, writing, engagement with community groups, collaborative knowledge building, and discussion. The informing undercurrent of the course is the quest for hope and moral-spiritual agency in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles. [30 max enrollment]

GENERAL ETHICS (PH-1008)

Credits:3

This course is an introduction to the philosophical study of ethics, focusing on key ethical questions (e.g., how we are to live, what we are obliged or permitted to do, etc.) and concepts (virtue, happiness, obligation, the good, and so forth). Through a careful reading of great philosophical works in the western tradition, important ethical theories will be presented within their historical context, including utilitarianism or consequentialism, deontological ethics, virtue theory, and natural law. Class discussion will center on the philosophical merit of these ethical approaches as well as their relevance to contemporary issues. Lecture/discussion format. Student evaluation will be based on class participation, two short written essays, and a final exam. Intended audience: MA, MTS, and MDiv. students.
