Ethics, Ontology, and the Environment: How Implicit Assumptions Shape the World Around Us

Hometown: Charlottesville, Virginia

Department: Philosophy

Advisor: Aaron Griffith


For my honors project, I'll be working to oppose anthropocentrism in environmental ethics and create an anti-hierarchical alternative to those deeply-rooted positions. In doing this work, I hope to cast a light on the damaging assumptions that permeate humankind's interactions with the natural environment.
