PL 212 - Philosophical Perspectives: The Natural and the Human

(3.00 cr.)

Prerequisite: PL 201 . The complex relationship between human existence and nature is explored. First, the course surveys the changing views of this relationship throughout history, then it focuses on the relationship with nature today. It asks what constitutes nature and how this relates to civilization and human creativity, how nature gives meaning to human existence, and questions the place and role of humans within the natural world. The consequences of living in an increasingly de-natured environment are explored.
