We are in the midst of an unprecedented, human-caused, environmental crisis. This study asks, "Given the present state of the world, what should be the primary objective of higher education?" The author contends that the modern university should help to make the world a better place by enabling human beings to live more meaningful and satisfying lives and by helping to promote social justice and environmental sustainability.

The twenty-first century is a period of great environmental and social transformation as climate change increasingly marks lives at levels that are personal, familial, communal, national, and global. A Canadian Climate of Mind presents stories that emerge from the waters, lands, and climate of Canada, and which have the potential to renew a compassionate energy for changing human relations with each other and with our world. The turbulent effects of climate change are popularly discussed in the modern language of scientific knowledge, political policies, economic mechanisms, and technological innovation. While there is much to be learned from these views, Timothy Leduc suggests a more profound call for change by returning to past understandings of the land and climate. He argues that the world is initiating us into a broader and humbler sense of what it is to be human in an interconnected reality. The world is doing this by responding to unsustainable practices such as our devastating reliance on fossil fuels. Weaving together voices from numerous backgrounds and time periods with Indigenous views on present and past environmental challenges, A Canadian Climate of Mind illuminates a world that is being shaken to its core while we hesitate to act.

Being and Value

Being and Value Author Frederick Ferre
ISBN-10 0791427552
Release 1996
Pages 406
Download Link Click Here

Being and Value begins with a discussion on metaphysics, showing the vital relationship between human life and the philosophical placement of value, and emphasizing the current transition from the old mechanical worldview to the postmodern alternative inspired by ecology. Being and Value shows how intimately premodern philosophy bound value into the fabric of things, and analyzes the expulsion of value from factual being during the modern period. Special attention is given to beauty: What is the relationship between the subjective and objective conditions of beauty? Is the beauty of nature merely the product of human appreciation? The answer is that beauty - and value - is a more potent ingredient in the structure of things than modern reductionism allows.

Nature truth and value

Nature  truth  and value Author George Allan

In Nature, Truth, and Value, nineteen scholars-writing from across the humanities and social sciences-challenge the reigning theoretical and philosophical enterprises of deconstruction and postmodernism. With great erudition, ambition, and daring, all contributions have one thread in common: their abiding interest in the work of Frederick Ferre, a thinker whose passion for intellectual inquiry remains unsurpassed. More specifically, Nature, Truth, and Value is an exploration of Ferre's ideas that traditional dichotomies are dead, that we are all a part of nature, that truth is one, and that value is ultimate. Ferre's colleagues and friends, writing in this volume, have been inspired to develop his ideas, which have become-now more than ever-critical issues in a broken and fragmented world. This book represents a deep exploration of Ferre's ideas and is indispensable to the fields of philosophy, theology, ethics, and environmental studies. Book jacket.
