ENST 232 Religion and Ecology

This course aims to discover how religious traditions have responded to the natural world through story, theology, and action. We will focus on Indigenous traditions, three Asian Religions (Taoism, Hinduism, and Buddhism) and two Western traditions (Judaism and Christianity). We will explore how these diverse traditions offer both ancient and new perspectives on the ecological crisis and express the hope to reunite us with the earth. Topics will include animals, ecosystems, Climate Change, and sustainability, etc. 1 Unit
