INDIVIDUALS
AND COMMUNITIES

This week,
Chapter 2 considers the relationship between individuals and communities.
Oftentimes, this discussion is at the center about debates over technology and
ethics. When considering the relationship between individuals and communities,
Michael Boylan suggests that there are two main considerations (“The Self
in Context: A Grounding for Environmentalism”).

The way
that individuals understand their role and ability to act

They way
that individuals see and understand their actions within a larger social
context

Using this
schema as a guide, what is the relationship between the individual and his or
her environmental community? What are the individual roles and responsibilities
to act ethically when considering technological impact on the environment? Be

VALUE AND
DUTY

In the
reading for this week, Onora O’Neill suggests, “Most of us agree that we
should value the environment, or at least some bits of the environment; fewer
of us agree why we should do so. Leaving aside answers that appeal to sheer
prudence or mere preference and looking at some of the array of answers
offering under the heading of ‘environmental ethics’ leaves a great deal
obscure” (Chapter 4: “Environmental Value, Anthropocentrism, and
Speciesism”).

How can we
define environmental ethics in the contemporary moment? What are the factors
involved in creating an ethical scaffold for understanding the natural world
and its resources? What is the role of duty and obligation?
