About CBM Seminar Series spring 2019:

The four seminars during the spring 2019 focuses on different aspects of environmental ethics and biological diversity.

Moral philosophy has traditionally been preoccupied with classical questions such as What should I do?, and What has value? Intuitively, the rapid extinction of species raise many ethical questions. Several of the traditional questions of moral philosophy will be applied to the accelerating extinction of species in the CBM Seminar Series during spring 2019.

The seminars are open for both researchers and students with different background. With these seminars, we aim to stimulate discussion on environmental ethical questions. The seminars consists of a shorter lecture, followed by a discussion where all perspectives are welcome!
