about this item
The old idea of nature as already given is challenged by a growing consciousness of the anthropogenic origin of our modern nature. We cannot any longer rely on nature as an unlimited resource for our survival, so we are forced to develop radical other ways to access nature than the techno-scientific ways which have dominated in Modernity. In this third volume of the collection Philosophy of Education, sponsored by the International Institute of Philosophy (Paris), a number of philosophers advance their ideas of nature and how it should be conveyed to new generations in the educational system. The book presents aesthetic, spiritual, artistic, embodied and materialistic dimensions of nature in education, and it provides analyses of how these can be expressed in citizen education, in the ethics of food production, and in our relation to animals.
