General Honors Previews

Fall  2016

During the Fall semester of 2016, CNM will offer one section of The Modern Legacy online plus the Understanding Evil course. Course descriptions are as follows:

CRN: 73206  GNHN 1122, Section 51  The Modern Legacy. Online.   Instructor: Cecily Corazon

Tough Mama's Kids: examining humanity's relationship with mothers and nature. How are we working with and/or against nature's rules? Are we nature's entitled rebel children or her loving grown-up caretaker children? How do we perceive mothers and women, and does that view affect our treatment of the earth? What effect does the quality of our relationship with nature have on our treatment of the planet's resources?

This course introduces students to key philosophical, scientific, political, and literary views of nature using the metaphor of the mother/child relationship. We will examine views of the state of nature and social contract theory, as well as the ethics of interacting with the earth and each other.  By the end of the course, students will be able to explain how they perceive feminism, intersectionality, privilege, natural resources, the laws of nature, and the effects of these concepts on how we treat our environment."
