PHL 360 - Concepts of Nature

3 Credits

An upper level seminar in which we explore conceptual frameworks surrounding the social construction of the concept of ‘Nature’. We will look at the tacit assumptions that inform our attitudes, decisions, and behaviors in relation to the natural world, and we will compare European, American, and Japanese models of understanding ‘Nature’.
Prerequisites: PHL 226 , PHL 262 , PHL 266 , or HIS 241
