To understand the current climate crisis is to ask the question of man’s responsibility towards nature. In this course, we work with this question through a critical study of the philosophical tradition, providing a Scandinavian perspective on environmental issues and sustainability in relation to the philosophical discourse and relating these findings to current discussions of sustainability and the ethical implications of our modern day lifestyle.
