Social and Sacred Ecology 1 (12 points)


Leader: Dr Peter Cock

Clayton First semester 2004 (Day)

Synopsis: Sacred and Sacred Ecology 1 explores the dialectic of the social and the sacred and examines the synergy between them. It examines the ways different social and religious structures and practices are responding to the ecological crisis locally and globally. It addresses contemporary, cultural, social, religious and philosophical perspectives on the human-nature relationship. In particular, it engages in a critical examination of selected aspects of social and sacred ecology from indigenous perspectives to postmodern re-enchantment of the human-nature connection.
