Doing No Harm in a Changing Climate: Professional Education, and the Problematic "Psy" Subject
Cornforth, Sue
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v45 n10 p1054-1066 2013
Climate change presents urgent ethical challenges. It causes us to revisit what it means to "do" professionalism and invites us to enter what Fisher (2002, p. xiv) described as the "forgotten zone" of human-nature relationships, posing the troubling question of whether we can continue to valorise a version of being human on the same terms as before. This article begins by considering the relevance of global warming to professional practice, foregrounding the commitment to do no harm. It poses as problematic the manner in which climate change knowledges have been taken up by the "psy subject". It concludes by considering how we might story different versions of being alive in, and to, the natural world.
