EFB 496 : Honors Seminar in Environmental Ethics and Philosophy

A unique and compelling course at ESF's Huntington Wildlife Forest in the Adirondacks

course group

EFB 496 class in the field

This seminar will introduce students to the philosopical aspects of topics ranging from evolution and climate change to ecological restoration. Through written responses to readings followed by seminar discussion, students will endeavor to understand and critically evaluate a rich series of timely and environmentally relevant subjects through a philosophical lens. 3 credits. No prerequisite required. Space is limited and questions should be directed to Marianne Patinelli-Dubay at mpatinelli@esf.edu

EFB 496/796: Environmental Philosophy and Writing

course group

Students will learn about environmental philosophy through the study and practice of philosophical inquiry as storytelling, in the tradition of philosopher Henry Bugbee. Particular attention will be paid to the role that storytelling plays in our striving to understand fundamental philosophical questions. These questions include whether the combined practice of immersion and commitment is the way to authentic being? When we attempt to understand the world through reason rather than through intuition, do we enter into a state of sensual exile? Is experience something we individually possess whose meaning we can claim first knowledge of, or is it an undergoing whose meaning is made in relationship with the world? Ultimately, we will bring all of our readings into conversation, adding our own written and spoken thoughts on the subjects that Bugbee and others consider, before introducing our own (new) questions into the conversation.

3 credits. No prerequisite required. Space is limiated and questions should be directed to Marianne Patinelli-Dubay at mpatinelli@esf.edu.
