Ethics, Place and Environment 12 (2):175 – 186 (2009)
|Abstract||Recent work in ethics and epistemology argues that physical surroundings have normative force. The ideas of 'grounding knowledge' and 'real ethics' provide an important way to understand sense of place. This paper uses this work to argue that there is a moral structure to material culture, and that the existence of this moral structure makes it necessary for us to pay attention to the epistemic import of the physical environments we create and live in. Since environments are thick with moral norms, it is incumbent upon us to figure out what kinds of environments are most conducive to our shared visions of the good life|
