Holden Village

Program Overview:
In PHIL 226, students apply ethical theories to determine what we should do in response to environmental issues and dilemmas such as whether animals and ecosystems have rights, what kind of value nature possesses, the proper focus of an environmental ethic, and what ecology has to do with economics and justice.  This J-Term course uses its distinctive setting at Holden Village in the Cascades to tangibly explore the themes of the course.  Holden Village, located on the site of a former mine, just completed an extensive remediation process and will serve as a central case study for the class.
