ES 105 - Nature and Culture


This course explores our understanding of the natural world from the perspective of the Humanities, reading both canonical and contemporary writers in the Environmental tradition. The course examines the ways particular ideas and attitudes toward nature have either contributed to the current environmental crisis or have inspired and continue to inspire new thinking on how to ameliorate the worst effects of past attitudes and practices. The course asks how we can productively transform our own thinking to become more thoughtful and wise contributors to environmental debates, by becoming sophisticated and generous-minded interpreters of texts, the world and our own experience.
