PHI 138 - (HP) Ethics and Sustainability: Personal, Social and Corporate Responsibility

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
This course considers the questions of how we should live and how we should value the future. Should we “discount” the future, that is, value it less than the present, or is it of equal or greater value than the present? Do we, as individuals, as societies, have responsibilities to future generations? The course examines the concept of sustainability and the ethical bases for individual, corporate, and social responsibilities to live, consume, and produce sustainably. The course combines philosophical readings with practical and concrete case studies.
