Can the Earths natural surroundings absorb further human impacts and still sustain our needs? This class actively questions our beliefs and behavior in order to reveal the means we have to improve the world. Together we examine the revolutionary character of science because recent genetic discoveries influence what and how we think about the material conditions of existence. We also explore the capacity of technology to transform the physical and biological environment beyond our recognition.
Through redesigning how we live and work, the texts reveal how you can restore our constructive relations with the natural world. By focusing on a text-based project in the course students will be asked to actively participate in becoming better custodians of the inhabited worlds rare, meaningful, and sustaining features.
