課程目標

Goal of this course

description within 150 words

The meeting of a European lecturer with Asian students provides a valuable opportunity for all to learn interculturally from each other. The goal of the course is therefore not only to gain an understanding of the multiple interrelationships between ecology and society, and of the Western philosophical roots of the global ecological crisis. We will also share our culturally diverse experiences with this phenomenon and try to jointly develop an intercultural perspective for the education for sustainable development.

課程簡述

Course description

description within 350 words

This course deals with global ecological problems such as environmental destruction, depletion of natural resources, reduction of biodiversity and exploitation of animals in industrialised agriculture. The course takes the perspective of the social and educational sciences.

The course begins by presenting a range of ecological problems and introducing the concept of sustainable development. Students are encouraged to share their own experiences and feelings about the issue.

Analysing the ecological crisis, social scientists usually point to two observations. First, the exploitation of nature and animals is seen as structurally embedded in the capitalist economy. Second, the distinction between human/non-human and nature/culture is socially constructed and implies inequality and exploitation. This mechanism is similar to other cases such as gender, social class, ethnicity. Inequalities are intertwined in complex relationships and reinforce each other. One example is the relationship between the „destruction of ecosystems“ and „Third World migration“. We will discuss these analyses and apply them to concrete cases.

The concepts that underpin global capitalism and modernity have a long tradition in European philosophical thought. They include cognitivism, empiricism, productivism and individualism. These concepts are not only Eurocentric but also anthropocentric reinforcing the idea that humanity can use and abuse the non-human world at liberty. In the course we will therefore reflect these concepts with reference to their ecological implications in detail.

Western pedagogical thinking is drenched in this philosophical tradition. The question arises whether an education for sustainable development based on these deficient concepts is at all appropriate. We will explore the hypothesis that the “Western Way” needs to be complemented by the “Eastern Way” and investigate the students’ own philosophical and religious traditions for contributions to the development of an education for sustainable development.
