The annual Dyson lecture will be held on February 9, 2012 at 4:00 p.m. in the Judicial Institute Lecture Hall on the Pace Law School campus.
Speaker: Heidi M. Hurd, former Dean of the University of
Illinois College of Law, and Professor of Law and Philosophy
Topic: Fouling Our Nest: Is An (Environmental) Ethic
Impotent Against (Bad) Economics?
What is the moral nature of nature's capital?
How do market failures contribute to the degradation of the environment?
Why is there no comprehensive ethical and philosophical account of why
environmental damage and destruction is immoral? This lecture will
explore the problem posed by the very field of environmental ethics and reveal
the philosophical conflict that undergirds of our moral ambivalence towards
nature and the environment.
The event is free and open to the public. To obtain additional information, contact Prof.
Brigit Crawford at firstname.lastname@example.org.
