Dr. Minteer is an environmental ethicist and policy scholar who studies issues at the intersection of environmental philosophy, environmental policy, and ecology. He is especially interested in the ethical justification of environmental policy goals, including the value foundations of policies and practices relating to biological conservation, ecological management, and the search for environmental sustainability. His recent work with James P. Collins (ASU-SoLS) has examined the ethical dimensions of ecological research and policy under planetary change, what Minteer and Collins call "ecological ethics." Dr. Minteer also studies the philosophical underpinnings and historical trajectory of American conservation and environmentalism. He teaches courses on environmental ethics and policy, and the human dimensions of conservation biology.
