What's it about?

This is your experimental philosophy course! @nathanology_ conducts a journey through the history of environmental thought, drawing on Plato, Spinoza, Deep Ecology and other traditions through lecture, rap and group learning.

We know we want to ‘save the Earth’ — but what are the concepts underlying our environmental thinking? What is ‘Nature’? What is ‘Ecology’?

These are not just fuzzy, abstract questions: how we think about reality affects the way we reshape it!

Who is it for?

People with an interest in environmental activism but no experience with study of philosophy, people who are the inverse of that, people familiar with neither, people familiar with both! Just bring your attention and digital presence.

What to expect

An introduction to Western Philosophy, assuming no background knowledge, geared thematically toward ecological themes and applications. Lecture with some musical elements peppered in. The course culminates in participants taking on an eco-activism project of some kind.

What else do I need to know?
