Against Zoos by Jamieson
“Against Zoos” by Jamieson source http://www.animal-rights-library.com/texts-m/jamieson01.htm About the class: This is philosophy paper and the teacher is little bit demanding! Course Objectives The central objective of this course is fivefold: (1) to become acquainted with major problems in environmental philosophy, the response by thinkers to the ecological crisis, and recognizing the ecological issues that we face today and in the future; (2) to critically think, interpret, and analyze philosophical texts; (3) to develop a personal philosophical attitude in order to question, criticize, and respond to these issues; (4) to clarify and articulate your own position and values on these issues; (5) to gain an ethical awareness of the responsibility humanity has to be just stewards of the environment. Generally speaking, I hope that students discover the use and value of philosophy. That they get a sense of the diversity and depth of philosophical thought. I hope that they understand that a belief is only as strong as the justification (evidence) for the belief and that the justification is only as strong as the counterarguments it can respond to.
