Integral Ecology: Pope Francis, Ethical Pluralism, and the Planet

This 2015 Rev. Bernie Clark, C.S.C. lecture features Christiana Zenner, Ph.D., assistant professor of theology, science and ethics in the Department of Theology at Fordham University, where she is affiliated faculty in Environmental Studies and American Studies. Her research engages religious ecological ethics at the intersection of Catholic Social Teaching, Ecological Anthropology, Natural Law Theory and developments in the Earth Sciences. In this lecture she gives an overview of Laudato Si, and urges human beings to take a holistic approach to ecology, noting that it must be considered when making decisions in all other areas of society and life.

The annual Rev. Bernie Clark, C.S.C. lecture was created by the Center for Social Concerns in 2009 in order to highlight the issues and themes within the Catholic social tradition, and to inspire students to live out Fr. Bernie’s teaching on social justice.
