Are Environmentalists Hysterical or Paranoid? Metaphors of Care and Nature Conservation

The talk will examine the assumptions which inform how we think about "care" in historical terms and how these conceptions relate to shifting ideas about human identity and nature, recognizing that the kinds of humans we are and the kinds of nature we want to conserve, are all but identical. The discussion is informed by a problem-centered approach to environmental ethics that focuses on the challenges modern society faces as it confronts a wide range of environmental problems. The talk will conclude with a few comments about what a biocentric approach to environmental ethics might entail.
