Naturalistic fallacy is and know Hume’s argument establishing the fallacy

  1. Know what the naturalistic fallacy is and know Hume’s argument establishing the fallacy
  2. Why a concern for the environment could be characterized as derivative under his approach
    “Two virtues that Hill relates to environmental concerns
    Humility/proper pride: a sense of one’s relative importance with respect to other human beings. Hill argues that the non-environmentalism is the person who sees nature strictly as a resource to be used as we see fit, even if this involves massive destruction of natural environment – lacks proper humility.
    Proper gratitude: people who have no tendency to cherish things that give them
    pleasure may be poorly disposed to respond gratefully to persons who are good to them. The person who feels no such “gratitude” toward nature is unlikely to show proper gratitude toward people.”
