PHI 363 Nature Way 4cr

This environmental philosophy course will explore the effects upon our treatment of the natural world that would result from substituting for our traditional Western assumptions, the assumptions of Taoism and other Eastern views, pre-domination American Indians, some holistic Western views, and Eco-Feminism. We will also explore the value and epistemological status of direct experience of nature as suggested in contemporary sources and by our own first hand experiences.
