Summary and Info
This collection explores a wide variety of questions, both of a theoretical and a practical nature, raised by teaching environmental ethics. The essays consider general issues such as the place of environmental advocacy in the environmental ethics classroom; using outdoor environments to prompt reflection on environmental ethics; and handling student responses – such as pessimism – that may emerge from teaching environmental ethics. The essays also consider practical issues, including successfully teaching environmental ethics to students without a background in philosophy; promoting the development of interdisciplinarity; useful ways to structure syllabi; and teaching and learning techniques. This book will be particularly useful to anyone teaching environmental ethics or environmental studies, or interested in the theoretical issues that teaching environmental ethics raises.
