    Description

    In the field of the environment, ethical studies generally focus on the justification of environmental measures, but rarely on the ethical problems that arise during their implementation. This lecture presents the method of principlism and analyses the implementation of certain environmental challenges. These change each semester the course is thought. This course is in English including examination. 

    Herbstsemester 2022
    In fall 2022 the lecture focuses on an aspect of our lives that is not only fundamental for our survival but also has tremendous impacts on the environment and the climate: the production of healthy and nutritious food. The first part of this lecture is concerned with the various entitlements of human and non-human entities in our food chains. The second part discusses the ethical implications of the reciprocal influence between agriculture and climate change. The third part engages challenges of unequal access to technology for climate mitigation and adaptation in food production.

    Training objectives

    The students deepen their knowledge of environmental ethics acquired in the Bachelor's degree ("Principles of environmental ethics", theories of justice). The students can now apply the concepts, theories and principles of environmental ethics they have learned to more complex problems and can reflect on the problems in a multi-layered and differentiated way.
