Philosophy for the 21st Century

In this course, we examine the prospects for fashioning a radically new philosophical understanding of the world and our place within it. Rather than employing anthropocentric models of the modern period, we search for another system of coordinates based on a broader ecological awareness and attention to both the human and the nonhuman world around us.
