RECR270/Lecture/M01 - Wilderness and the American Culture | Credits 3.00
This course is a survey of wilderness and the philosophy of wilderness through the ages, encouraging increased aesthetic perception and deepened awareness of the human experience through contact with the wilderness. Studying the history and concept of wilderness helps us to understand ourselves and circumstances of our situation. Concepts such as art, literature, politics, romanticism, the enlightenment, and religion are explored through our relationship with the wilderness. Though the focus of this course is on the wilderness and its impact on the American culture, the concept of wilderness from non-western civilizations are explored, compared, and contrasted as well. RECR 270 fulfills the SUNY General Education Humanities requirement. Prerequisites: Prior completion of RDNG 116 if required by placement testing; prior completion or concurrent enrollment in ENGL101. 3 Cr. (3 Lec.) Spring and fall semesters.
