A Situational Understanding of Environmental Values and Evaluation

Lecture by Bryan Norton

Wednesday, November 8, 2017 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Norton presents an accessible and useful taxonomy of different disciplinary approaches to evaluating environmental change, including willingness-to-pay, cost-benefit analysis, intrinsic value, and risk management. With a distinction between substantive and procedural rationality, he concludes by outlining a pragmatic approach to environmental policy decision making.

Bryan Norton is Distinguished Professor Emeritus in Philosophy and Policy, in the School of Public Policy, Georgia Institute of Technology. In addition to many influential academic articles and books, he has served on the Environmental Economics Advisory Committee of the US EPA Science Advisory Board, the Governing Board for the Society for Conservation Biology, and both the Board of Directors and the Scientific Advisory Board of Defenders of Wildlife.
