We are a community of graduate students and faculty in the Department of Philosophy at Michigan State University (MSU) who are engaged in research, teaching, and outreach in environmental philosophy and ethics.

Our work covers topics such as agricultural ethics, environmental justice, values in environmental sciences, food sovereignty, ecofeminism, environmental education, animal ethics, ecological restoration, climate justice, epistemic integration in environmental sciences, sustainability ethics, and environmental pragmatism.

Much of this work is in active dialogue with environmental and agricultural sciences and other humanities disciplines on campus, nationally and internationally. Faculty actively contribute to institutions such as the National Academy of Sciences, the National Advisory Environmental Health Sciences Council, the Department of Interior Advisory Committee on Climate Change and Natural Resource Science, the National Research Council Advisory Committee on Biotechnology, the Landscape Conservation Cooperative National Council, the Northwest Climate Science Center, and the Michigan Environmental Justice Coalition.

Graduate student and faculty work has been funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, National Science Foundation, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Shalom Center for Justice and Peace, Spencer Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, Sloan Foundation, Kellogg Biological Station, U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Great Lakes Integrated Sciences and Assessments Center, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and the Sustainable Michigan Endowed Program.

This community offers the opportunity for advanced study, research, and engagement in environmental philosophy and ethics at the doctoral level, for students enrolled both in the Department of Philosophy and other doctoral programs at MSU.

Opportunities for Study in the Department of Philosophy

Philosophical and ethical thinking and skills can play important roles in our efforts to address many environmental and agricultural issues. The MSU Department of Philosophy offers graduate and undergraduate courses on environmental and agricultural topics. Past graduate courses have included Environmental Justice, Animal Ethics, and Sustainability Ethics. Other, regularly offered graduate courses on bioethics, feminist philosophy, and the philosophy of science often provide complimentary topics, issues, and frameworks for environmental philosophy and ethics.

Annual undergraduate courses include Environmental Ethics, Ethics and Biotechnology, and Animal Ethics. Faculty and graduate students also pursue grant-funded and other collaborative projects that address environmental and agricultural issues. Coursework and participation in such projects are crucial to how we engage in research, teaching, and outreach in environmental philosophy and ethics.

Opportunities for Interdisciplinary Study at MSU

Seminars on environmental and agricultural issues are available in other departments. Units that focus on environmental research and education include Community Sustainability and Crop and Soil Sciences. Other departments have strong groups of faculty interested in environmental issues, including Writing, Rhetoric and American Culture, Sociology, and Anthropology. Our students have the opportunity to expand their curriculum by pursuing graduate specializations in related interdisciplinary fields:

Animal Studies

Social Science and Humanities Perspectives, which is administered by the Department of Sociology, provides graduate students with basic knowledge of relationships between humans and other animals and how they are linked together in a fragile biosphere. The program includes a doctoral and master’s graduate specialization, cutting-edge research, a monthly seminar series on the MSU campus, and a registered student organization that connects academic initiatives with the local community.

Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems (SAFS)

Students who are enrolled in any graduate program at MSU are eligible to complete the MSU Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems (SAFS) Graduate Specialization. The requirements are 9 credits: 3 credits of required courses and 6 credits of elective courses. Students that registered before Fall 2021 can elect to finish the original EFFS program, or the updated graduate SAFS specialization requirement

Environmental Science and Policy (ESPP)

MSU’s Environmental Science and Policy Program was established in 2003 to build graduate education programs that are innovative, interdisciplinary, and campus-wide. The program facilitates interdisciplinary environmental research and MSU and, in particular, links MSU research with national and global research priorities. The doctoral specialization offers courses designed to show how different disciplines conceptualize environmental issues and how scientific information can be brought to bear on environmental decision-making and environmental policy.

Gender, Justice and Environmental Change (GJEC)

Gender, Justice, and Environmental Change is a graduate specialization available as an elective for students who are enrolled in master’s and doctoral degree programs at Michigan State University. The specialization is sponsored jointly by the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources and the College of Social Science. The program is designed in particular to examine these issues and processes from both local and global perspectives, challenging traditional dichotomies between the First and Third Worlds, the North and the South.


Students and faculty involved in environmental philosophy and ethics (EP&E) at MSU currently sustain several interdisciplinary projects throughout the University, the broader Lansing community, the state of Michigan and the Great Lakes region. These projects integrate philosophical skills and concepts with work that addresses felt environmental and agricultural issues.

Global Midwest Initiative: The New Ethics of Food

EP&E faculty Gretel Van Wieren, Paul Thompson, and Kyle Whyte are working with MSU Digital Humanities Librarian Thomas Padilla, Nancy Tuana at Penn State, Robert Steiffer and Jesse Steinberg at University of Wisconsin-Madison, and EP&E graduate student Ian Werkheiser on a project entitled “The New Ethics of Food.” This project is part of the Mellon Foundation-funded Humanities Without Walls-Globale Midwest Initiative. The project seeks to build up a network of transdisciplinary research and activism centered on the emerging ethics of food coming out of the problems and potentials in the Midwest’s unique position.

Values and Policy in Interdisciplinary Environmental Science:

A Dialogue-based Framework for Ethics Education

NSF funded project to develop an approach to graduate ethics education in interdisciplinary environmental science courses that better prepares the next generation of environmental scientists to solve complex problems. A structured yet flexible ethics education framework will be created for developing course modules that can subsequently be adopted for use in classroom dialogue, building on results of work previously funded by NSF (the Toolbox Project). Students in courses using these modules will participate actively in identifying and assessing values-related challenges that are at the intersection of multiple environmental perspectives and at the intersection of science with policy.

Toolbox Dialogue Initiative logo

The Toolbox Dialogue Initiative

TDI partners with environmental initiatives and teams, providing communication enhancement and team development opportunities, along with data for use in evaluating integrative activities. Current long-term partners include AgBioResearch at Michigan State University and the Centre for Agriculture and Biosciences International’s Woody Weeds in East Africa project. Previous partners have included the Northwest Climate Science Center (NW CSC) and the Regional Approaches to Climate Change—Pacific Northwest Agriculture (REACCH) Cooperative Agricultural Project. TDI also provides one-time workshops and has worked with partners interested in sustainability planning, addressing environmental disasters, and issues related to food.

Sustainable Michigan Endowed Project

SMEP serves as a catalyst and convener of interdisciplinary dialogue and research around existing and emerging sustainability topics, and has invested considerable resources in exploring the implications of sustainability particularly for the future of Michigan. It has developed in depth conceptualizations about what comprises engaged sustainability scholarship and how that would translate into research, teaching and outreach. SMEP is now moving to widen the recognition of the significance of these differences for the role of science in addressing societal concerns.

Paul B. Thompson held the W.K. Kellogg Chair in Agricultural, Food and Community Ethics at Michigan State University from 2003 until 2022. As of the 2022-2023 academic year, he is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Philosophy. Thompson has worked on four problems in environmental philosophy. His dissertation on the philosophy and evaluation of environmental and health risk, especially as deriving nuclear power, set the stage for career-long studies of risk analysis, risk communication and the metaphysics of risk. After doing work on the risks of genetically engineered crops, he developed an abiding interest in the role and philosophy of agriculture as a neglected orientation to the problems of environmental philosophy. From Field to Fork: Food Ethics for Everyone (2015) won the Book-of-the-Year award from the North American Society for Social Philosophy. Thompson has also contributed to the philosophy of sustainability, a project linked to his interest in public philosophy, with books including The Agrarian Vision: Sustainability and Environmental Ethics (2010) and Sustainability—What Everyone Needs to Know (2021). Finally, he has worked closely with cognitive ethologists on standards for improvement of the conditions in which animals are housed, especially in agricultural production systems.


Blake Ginsburg

Blake Ginsburg is a doctoral student in the Department of Philosophy and is pursuing specializations in Animal Studies and Women’s and Gender Studies. His research interests include animal and environmental philosophy, critical animal studies, ecofeminism, ethology, philosophy of science, and philosophy of technology. Blake holds a BA in Philosophy and a BS in Biological Science (concentration in Biodiversity, Ecology, and Conservation) from California State University, Fullerton. He also holds a Graduate Certificate in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality studies and a MA degree in Environmental Philosophy from the University of Montana. While at the University of Montana, Blake wrote a thesis that explored the ethical dimensions and transformative significance of Timothy Treadwell’s relationships with brown bears and red foxes in Katmai National Park and Preserve before he and his partner, Amy Huguenard, were killed and eaten by a bear in 2003. Blake is currently working on philosophical issues that emerge at the intersection of environmental philosophy and animal philosophy. He is particularly interested in the value of philosophical ethology and ethological philosophy (or ethosophy) as disclosive and generative mediums with great promise for drawing attention to and enacting alternative human-animal relational possibilities. He considers these projects to be significant insomuch as they have the potential to inspire the transformation of our personal and collective worlds in view of the large-scale anthropogenic violence that is routinely enacted against marginalized peoples, nonhuman animals, and the rest of the more-than-human world.
