Ecology in Philosophy and Literature
We examine the basic principles of ecological thinking, exploring the ways that different writers represent and relate to the 'natural' world. Some key questions: What is nature, and where do humans fit in the natural world? How exactly do humans differ from other animals? Do these differences make us superior beings? What are our ethical responsibilities towards the earth and its inhabitants? In what ways have the technologies of writing, television, and computers affected humankind's relationship to the natural world?
