Conservation ethics: An obligation-centered approach by Alexander Lee( file )
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Environmental ethics has generally taken up nature conservation as an issue of environmental value: we ought to protect nature to protect value in nature. This value-centered conservation ethic raises three categories of problems: theoretical challenges over the commensurability and substitutability of environmental value; discursive hurdles with how we talk about conservation; and practical problems with how conservationists put philosophical tools into actions. I investigate these problems in concert to show how obligations provide a plausible alternative account of why and how we ought to protect the natural world. This dissertation argues first that a value-centered approach has overwhelmingly been used to defend conservation; second, that such an approach is unwieldy and impractical; and third, that moral obligations offer a plausible alternative ethic that explains, defends, and prescribes the conservation of nature. I use a review of relevant literature, a series of thought experiments, and three case studies. The case of wolf management in Denali, Alaska highlights the "Substitution Problem," which calls into question the substitutability of value. The case of salmon conservation and hydroelectric development of the Susitna River in Alaska provides an example of how a broader focus on reason would support an obligation-centered idea of conservation. The case of geologic preservation in Goblin Valley State Park, Utah shows how an obligations framework already grounds many environmental protections and accounts for a wider scope of conservation. I find that intersubjective agent-centered obligations explain that we ought to protect nature because of moral principles established by reasons that hold up to the scrutiny of others
Truth and climate change: Pragmatist truth confronted by Habermas and Ratzinger in the context of climate change by Ricardo Simmonds( file )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
What is the truth about climate change? An answer to this polemic question requires at least a definition of climate change and a definition of truth, and the relationship between the two. While a definition of climate change is complex involving aspects of both Nature and Culture, the meaning of 'truth' in philosophical terms has been intensely debated throughout history to our present times. This thesis explores how truth emerges in the climate change debate and focuses on a specific pragmatist definition which offers its truth about climate change. Through the philosophy of Habermas and Ratzinger this pragmatist conception of truth is challenged and a renewed approach to finding the truth on climate change is proposed

Restoration, Reintroduction, and Repair: Moral Obligations Regarding Ecosystem Identities by Alexander Lee( file )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Ecological restoration aims to repair the damage, assuage the harm, rectify the wrong, and change the course of negative environmental impact. I argue that obligations regarding natural entities provide a motivating moral reason to restore nature. If we wish to use restoration to repair the damage done by human impact, we must direct our restoration efforts at the ecological identities degraded by our wrongdoing. Current efforts to reintroduce the greenback cutthroat trout (Oncorhynchus clarki stomias) to their native streams in Colorado provide an in-depth illustration of the ethics of restoration. Reintroduction in this case largely claims success, despite a known genetic misidentification of a large portion of the project's breed stock. Managers currently face a choice of whether to continue the program (and mis-introduction), or change course. Continuing to introduce genetically impure breed stock would be emblematic of restoration practices that often fail to incorporate a full understanding of the environmental problem when defining restoration goals. This example provides a lens for constructing normative criteria for critically examining restoration policy. Investigating past discourse on restoration and using the greenback reintroduction and restoration as a case-study, I demonstrate that restoration is at times obligatory and ought to be directed at repair, rather than at function, value, or character. Restoration broadly ought to prioritize the integrity of the ecological identities to which our actions are aimed, and a new approach is needed in the greenback cutthroat trout case
