★ 3 (fi 6) (either term, 3-0-0) Investigation of the philosophical and social issues related to technology and the environment. The natural/artificial distinction, different senses of "environment" and the ways we understand, package, and manage nature form the foundation of the course. Issues in environmental ethics are also addressed. Thinkers may include Marx, Heidegger, Marcel, Borgmann, Winner, Singer, Regan, and others. Prerequisite: None, but AUPHI 350 would be useful. Note: Credit may be obtained for only one of AUENV 355 and AUPHI 355.
