Tuesday, April 12, 2011 ENV222H1 Prof. MacDonald 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 lecturereading 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 wthe 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 societyenvironmentalism 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!
