Philosophy Department Colloquium: Sustainability Ethics

The Philosophy Department announces an upcoming talk entitled “Sustainability Ethics,” presented by Dr. Christian Becker, assistant professor of philosophy and science, technology, and society at Penn State. The talk will be held on February 19, 2010, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. in the Eberly Boardroom.

The speaker aims to develop sustainability ethics as a new field of applied ethics and provide a substantial input to the analysis and solution to the issue of sustainability. He argues that the issue of sustainability has an inherent ethical dimension, and demonstrates that the ethical issue is a rather complex and new one which requires a new type of sustainability ethics to adequately approach it.
