ERS 310: Environmental Thought

A roughly chronological survey of human ideas and behaviours related to living on Earth. From the dawn of time to the present, with attention to implications for the future. Examination of evolving and conflicting positions on the proper role of humans in society and nature, on how to make a living and on how to achieve and maintain wellbeing. The roots of unsustainability and the old and new strategies for maintaining or achieving desirable futures.
