The World Around Us: Philosophy and the Environment
Online Course - Limited space
Each year is a new year of broken records. New record temperatures. New records in the destructiveness of hurricanes and wildfires. New records in atmospheric carbon and deforestation. It’s impossible not to think about the environment these days. Let’s learn to think about it with the breadth and depth that the issue demands.
This course draws on a diverse mix of readings that investigate the ethical, political, aesthetic, and spiritual dimensions of environmental philosophy. We’ll do more than look for solutions. We’ll learn new ways of thinking about the problems—and in the process, learn new ways of thinking about the world around us and our place in it.
