Concordia University adds "Escaping the progress trap" to course material

Dr. Sheila Mason, professor of Virtue Ethics, Feminist Ethics and Environmental Ethics with Concordia University's philosophy department has included portions of "Escaping the progress trap" in the Environmental Ethics course for January 2008. Comments Dr. Mason, "The two chapters that I would like to use are Excuses, Excuses, and Nurturing Genius. These fit in well as I like to use Damasio and Ledoux to make the point about emotion, which fits very well with Virtue Theory - the basis of this course...The writing is very beautiful: clear and measured."
