CEMT 363     Sustainability as an Ethical Problem  (3)

The concept of sustainability necessarily entails the question, "What ought to be sustained?" This course examines the proper relationship of humankind to the nonhuman world. It surveys the various and sometimes conflicting ways the term is used in political, ethical, environmental, and institutional contexts. Criticisms of and alternatives to dominant views of sustainability are considered from agrarian, environmental justice, and political-ecological perspectives.
