Abstract

After critiquing the four visions of alternative futures proposed by Costanza last year in Conservation Ecology, I encourage students to use epistemology (the study of knowledge) in assessing the role of technology, to incorporate the insights of various religious traditions regarding environmental theology, and to focus on the Greek nature of “household” in developing an integrated curriculum of study.

Key words

environmental theology, epistemology, global vision, household, integrated education, modernism, sustainable development
