PHIL2640 - Sustainability, System and Society
Semester 2, 2012 | Credit Points: 6
Coordinator: Adrian Currie
Is sustainability just a matter of green product labelling? Of radical eco-efficiency? Of mimicking nature? Or of living more frugally and communally? And do sustainable products and systems presuppose a sustainable society which regulates design, production and consumption through political and philosophical reflection on what it is to "live well"? This unit examines "technological" notions of the sustainable in order to expose their dependence on the political and philosophical.
