Course Description

We face many problems in the world today; many argue that these problems are deeply interconnected. Deep Ecology is one response to global problems. It seeks fundamental transformations in our views of the world and ourselves, claiming that there is no divide in the forms of life on earth. Deep Ecology, therefore, aims for an environmentally sustainable and spiritually rich way of life that recognizes the intrinsic value of all life forms and the enchantment of the world. This course involves an introductory examination of Deep Ecology from a Religious Studies perspective that investigates traditions in terms of their thought, action, and communities.
