ANNOUNCEMENT

Date:  9 December 2004

To:      All UF Graduate Faculty, Staff and Students

From:  UF School of Natural Resources and Environment

RE:      Spring 2005 ALS 5932-4816 Environment and Reason

Seats are still available in Section 4816 of Spring 2005 ALS 5932
Environment and Reason, a course offered through the UF School of Natural
Resources and Environment.

The class meets Periods 3-4 on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 221 Little Hall.
Dr. Ignacio Porzecanski (e-mail, [log in to unmask]) is the instructor.

The course explores how the sciences search for solutions to environmental
issues, and how society perceives and reacts to these issues.  It
familiarizes students with the principles and methods used by the natural
and social sciences to understand and resolve environmental problems.  It
addresses questions about the reliability of knowledge, handling of
uncertainty and relationship among cultures, social processes and policy
formation.

This course extends and complements EVS 4000 Critical Thinking in
Environmental Science.  It explores important contextual influences on
environmental issues like rationality and reason; individual, communal and
social aspects of environmental perceptions; property and governance;
ethical, economic and legal frameworks; questions of scale in research and
policy; and the nature of institutions.  It is a forum for discussing
research ideas and methods, relying mainly on those that students are using
in their own theses and dissertations on specific research projects, in a
collective manner.

The course's reading list will be complemented by literature that students
are using or would like to study.  To allow for ample discussion, the class
will meet for two consecutive periods, twice a week, to work through ideas
and problems, inspect their soundness and perspective, and advance toward
clarity and coherence.

For further information, e-mail Dr. Porzecanski directly at [log in to unmask]
(Please do *not* send responses to the listserv monitor's e-mail address.)
