授業の到達目標 In this course, you will be able to develop problem analysis
skill, knowledge management skill and communication skill
regarding your decision about the use of natural resources
and daily activities that directly or indirectly affect the
health of the natural environment. You will also be able to
connect your activities to environmental conservation, water
governance, localized practices, and others.
授業概要 This course helps you to consider your ethical relationships
to the natural environment. It provides a broad overview of
ethical issues that are pertinent to human-nature
relationships. Our topics include the history of
environmental ethics; international environmental law,
household environmental ethics, water ethics and indigenized
environmental ethics. These wide-ranging topics provide
contexts for you to discuss the ethical, legal, and social
implications of environmental problems, and, in turn, give
us better coordinated directions for achieving environmental
conservation and sustainability. Throughout this course, you
are encouraged to develop and refine your own original and
innovative insights on how humans can better coordinate
their efforts to deal with many regional and global
environmental issues today and tomorrow.
キーワード Environmental ethics, International environmental law,
intellectual property rights, Water governance, Indigenous
peoples and traditional knowledge

Warning on Plagiarism: If one takes the words, ideas, or
research of another person(s) without proper citation as if
these were his or her own, such a person is considered to
have committed the act of plagiarism. Plagiarism is
intellectual theft and a clear violation of the code of
ethics and behavior, which often result into a severe
penalty. Some web sites (e.g., Wikipedia) often lure
students to copy a large portion of its web pages without
citation. Please be aware such a work cannot be considered
worth being part of admitting a credit in this course.

In-Class Contribution
This course seeks to provide “a safe learning
environment,” in which all students are welcome to express
their opinions without worrying about making mistakes. You
are expected to share your opinion with other students and
learn from each other with due respect. Keeping this in mind
as the basic underlying principle of this course, I
occasionally ask you to express or write your opinion in
progress about some issues that are salient in environmental
ethics.

③ Comments on Grading Practices for This Course
You may wonder why you received A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, and
other grading marks for your paper. Here is roughly what it
means.

A+ or A: This paper has an excellent quality in terms of
essay organization, writing skill, originality, mature
insights, and independent argument. It is based on your
considerable research effort and the sound and original
interpretation of sources. The paper is also accompanied
with clear and appropriate academic citation and references.

A-: This paper demonstrates its good quality of essay
organization, writing skill, originality and independent
argument in most part of the discussion. It is based on good
research effort and the sound interpretation of sources. The
paper is also accompanied with clear and appropriate
academic citation and references.

A-/B+: This paper has a potential to be qualified as A-
paper with some good revision effort.

B+ or B: This paper contains some good quality discussion
with independent argument or insight. However, it falls
short in essay organization and clarity of its writing. The
argument may be inconsistent at some point or not cohesive
enough to make a cogent discussion throughout the paper. It
is based on some research effort but has a good potential to
be improved by more research work and writing refinement.

B-: This paper basically understands the requirement of the
course assignment, but falls short in fully expressing the
importance of paper topic. It shows some effort of research
on the paper topic but do not effectively convey your
thoughts and analysis. Or it does not properly cite sources.

C+, C: This paper has some serious problem with essay
organization, writing skill, originality and independent
argument. It does not seem to respond to the assignment
objective properly though it may be greatly improved with
further research and writing improvement.

C-: This paper does not seem to understand the assignment
objective. It does not seem to be based on research.
However, this paper can be improved with additional research
effort and better understanding of essay writing.

D: This paper fails to respond to the course requirement. It
needs to resubmit or redo the assignment. Or it may have
problem with plagiarism or academic honesty.
