New Core: Fulfills 3 credits in Area of Knowledge V.

Course Description: This course examines prominent worldviews (organic, mechanistic, preservationist, conservationist, religious and secular stewardship for example) that have guided human action toward the natural world. From a global and interdisciplinary perspective lead by the influential writings of philosophers, economists, environmentalists, theologians, historians, political science, biologists, and naturalists we analyze the interaction between human and natural phenomena, the impact human actions have on the natural world, and the ways nature affects change in civilization. The primary goal of the course is to provide students an opportunity to see how different views of nature influence human choices and offer alternative courses of action toward viable solutions and have important consequences that are subject to an ethical analysis.
