PHI 2050 - Nature, Science, and Technology


[LGWL2] This course will examine a variety of influential movements and pressing issues in philosophical work concerning the ways that scientific inquiry and technological development shape how we view human society and our relationships with the other-than-human world. Topics addressed may include the distinction between natural and artificial, the association of science and technology, the value and applicability of the scientific method and of scientific theories, the potential conflicts between sustainability and resource development, the roles of social and environmental justice and activism, and what, if any, moral responsibilities humans have to non-human animals, to the natural environment, and to technology itself.

Prerequisites & Notes
