Content

The unit explores the intersections that occur between philosophy, public policy and the ‘natural environment’ in different cultural settings. Beginning with an historical account of the development of philosophical attitudes towards the ‘natural environment’, the course proceeds to consider shifts in cultural and utilitarian relationships to the environment, and concludes with a discussion of contemporary issues in natural resource management and environmental policy. While an important focus is on current trends in environmental philosophies and policies, close attention is given to the lived experiences of those involved in environmental issues, including indigenous groups, primary producers (farmers, fishers), scientists, natural resource managers and policy makers. This unit thus offers a philosophically informed, yet practically grounded perspective for those studying environmental management, those interested in broad, philosophical debates about the environment, as well as those with a general interest in environmental issues. Practical examples will be drawn from different parts of the world.
