    The Spectrum Series welcomes Ronald Sandler presenting "The Ethics of De-Extinction."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Spectrum Series welcomes Ronald Sandler presenting "The Ethics of De-Extinction." Due to advances in genetics and synthetic biology there now appears to be a plausible pathway for reviving species that have been extinct for decades, centuries, or even millennia. Many people are excited about the prospect of bringing species such as the passenger pigeon, tasmanian devil, and mammoth "back from the dead." In this talk Sandler will discuss the social, ethical, and ecological aspects of de-extinction and ask whether it is something that we ought to pursue. Ronald Sandler is an Associate Professor of Philosophy and the Director of the Ethics Institute at Northeastern University—and a Denison alum. Winner of Northeastern's Excellence in Teaching Award, he is a leading figure in the "environmental virtue ethics" movement. He is the author of Character and Environment (Columbia) and the forthcoming Ethics and Species (Cambridge), and has published widely on issues in environmental ethics, environmental justice, and the philosophy of technology with special emphasis on nanotechnology. Free and open to the public.

    The Spectrum Series welcomes Ronald Sandler presenting "A Defense of the Moral Status of Artifacts?”
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: Ronald Sandler presents "A Defense of the Moral Status of Artifacts?” It is a common view in applied ethics that artifacts – things created by us for our ends (e.g. computers, cars, water bottles, and pencils) – do not have direct moral status. They do not have interests that need to be consider when our actions or policies impact them, so we can treat them however we like. In this talk Sandler will discuss whether this view is reasonable and explore the possibility that we might have responsibilities to the artifacts that we create. Ronald Sandler is an associate professor of Philosophy and the Director of the Ethics Institute at Northeastern University—and a Denison alum. Winner of Northeastern's Excellence in Teaching Award, he is a leading figure in the "environmental virtue ethics" movement. He is the author of Character and Environment (Columbia) and the forthcoming Ethics and Species (Cambridge), and has published widely on issues in environmental ethics, environmental justice, and the philosophy of technology with special emphasis on nanotechnology. Free and open to the public.
