Is there a philosophical and practical premise for ecological ethics?

Despite technological advancement, there is still a mystery to being alive and a mystery to the natural world we are a part of. Why should that matter and how should we live with the natural world?

This episode explores four premises:

  1. Contingency - the nature of existence and the givenness of life.
  2. Inherent Value - the perception of existence and its potential goodness.
  3. Inherent Process - the mechanics of existence for how living things are in process.
  4. Teleology - the ethic of existence and how our actions can be determined by the goal of existence: Universal Flourishing
