Fall 2009 not offered
This course is an interdisciplinary fusion of visual studies and environmental philosophy and offers an introduction to ecological thinking and concepts of sustainable living. Beginning with a reading of Descartes--an architect of the modern world--we explore the basic philosophical problems involved with understanding perception, media, and concepts of mind, concluding with architectural theory and approaches to eco-design and postindustrial aesthetics.
