STUDY GUIDE
the lectures corresponded quite closely to the lecture notes (maybe not the readings) thus to prepare for the exam the
things that will help you the most are
are profs lecture notes
our own notes as he interprets
and beyond that the readings
a picture of profs thinking:
subject matter of the course is global
there are references to Canada
very little about the developing world
prof was trying to be global
trying to include matter starting 10 000 years ago
basic subject matter
two way interaction between humans and nature (non-human world)
theme (repeatedly) of how do you define nature and the natural
definition for environment (technically): that which lies outside the self
environment would includes objects thus there was a differentiation between objects and the living world - nature
vs the non-human world - non-human being the more accurate term
the production process diagram - using raw materials and putting them back out - this being a large part of the
relationship
Course is divided into five parts
Part 1 themes:
lesson on interdisciplinary environmental studies
pay attention to the concept of interdisciplinary and environmental studies (will be on the exam)
the very last of the lecture/reading fell behind - covered in 10 minutes - will not be in the exam
the implications of human domination over nature
basic chronology laid out in the 1st reading will be on the exam - going back to cultural revolution 10 000 yrs.
ago
the basic chronological picture given - the fundamental changes: the increase in human impacts on nature
coming first w/the agricultural revolution
then settlement: the idea that humans went from hunting and gathering to staying in the same place
this was when the invention of power within human society happened
the first increase in human impact about 10 000 - 500 years ago coming through settlement and the agricultural
revolution
the other transition from feudalism (happening in Europe - somewhere around the 1300s up to around the 1700s
of the Renaissance) to the scientific revolution and the industrial revolution
these are two key turning points
the other chronology that we went through in the civil society/environmentalism lecture a few weeks ago - there
was a fairly detailed chronology of things that were happening in the 19th century before and after WWII - must
know!
