Apocalyptic Narratives

(Memorial Lounge, Pasquirella Spiritual Center, from Apr 23, 2007 06:00 PM to Apr 23, 2007 07:00 PM)

Basic to apocalyptic literature is the linkage between a moral vision of the universe and the fate of the earthly order, a cosmic vision usually expressed in terms of judgment. Though commonly presented in threatening images of Doomsday, it can also stress themes of pervasive divine justice, which places all human transactions into a universal context.

In Chapter 1 of Beautiful Souls (“Disobeying the Law”) we are faced with a key distinction between morality and legality.

Biodiversity at 25: An Argument for a Critical Understanding of the Normative Role of Biodiversity

(112 Borland lab, University Park, PA 16802, from Jan 27, 2014 04:00 PM to Jan 27, 2014 05:00 PM)

Scientific concepts have often played the role of proxies for ethical values. This is especially true for values assigned to nature, such as conservation value. Since its origin in 1986, the concept of biodiversity has emerged as one of the most influential in this tradition of proxy concepts. Contrary to all expectations, recent research in microbial biology in the Amazon shows that in cases of ecosystem conversions, diversity goes up.
