Climate Change – Achim Koeddermann, Philosophy, on the need for ethics

SUNY Oneonta is developing a new certificate on climate change. Achim Koeddermann, Philosophy, gave an invited talk on Certification for Climate Change? The normative failures of deriving an ‘ought’ from an ‘is.’ The talk on “the need for philosophical foundations for scientists” examined the hidden different philosophical positions behind appeals to stop climate change. Students and faculty from the Environmental Science Masters Program (Koblenz University, Landau, Germany) discussed the need for a solid foundation beyond science in order to justify normative claims (11/22).
