1. The central project in this paper is to assess Wez’s ie
Is he correct that both anthropocentric and non-anthropocentric approaches
to environmental ethics (and ethics generally) would support the position
that we ought to reject consumerism and reduce our consumption?
Is he correct that the PAC describes well the extent to which we should
reduce our consumption? Or is PAC too demanding? Or not demanding
enough?
Finally, what are the implications of PAC (or the alternative that you
advocate) in practice? What are the sorts of changes in practice, behaviour,
or lifestyle that it would require?
