LAIS 100: Nature and Human Values
Nature and Human Values focuses on diverse views and critical questions concerning traditional and contemporary issues linking the quality of human life and Nature, and their interdependence. The course examines various disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches regarding two major questions:

  • How has Nature affected the quality of human life and the formulation of human values and ethics?
  • How have human actions, values, and ethics affected Nature?

These issues use cases and examples taken from across time and cultures. Themes will include but are not limited to population, natural resources, stewardship of the Earth, and the future of human society.
