Barrett, The Honors College hosts visiting professor public lecture

February 19, 2007

Arizona State University’s Barrett, The Honors College will host Dale Jamieson as part of its annual visiting professor public lecture. Jamieson’s lecture will address American environmentalism in light of these opposing perspectives and will explore justice as a means for reconciliation between the two viewpoints.

The lecture is scheduled from 7 p.m., Tuesday, March 6, La Sala, ASU’s West campus, 4701 West Thunderbird Road, Phoenix.

A professor of Environmental Studies and Philosophy at New York State University, Jamieson teaches courses in ethics, environmental philosophy, environmental justice, philosophy of biology and mind, and global change. His work bridges science and philosophy exploring the morality of our relationships to animals and nature.

Jamieson believes the human relationship to nature expresses itself in both environmentally friendly and environmentally destructive ways. He will investigate justice as being both conceptually and historically at the heart of American environmentalism, motivating people to make change, and taming the movement’s tendency toward misanthropy and pessimism.
