Physical Geography: Beholding the Body of the Earth

Deepening our natural understanding of the earth as a living system, this course explores Gaia Theory and the new cosmology of the earth that is emerging in science. Within this framework, we explore the formation of the earth+geomorphology and geophysiology+or one could say the "digestion," "circulatory," and other systems of Gaia. This new vision in Western science can reawaken understanding and reconfirm our commitment and reciprocity with the earth.
