This book argues that the knowledge base behind current teaching is flawed, and the resulting mind-sets and attitudes are often counterproductive to the aims of environmental education.
Introduction: Challenging the Contemporary Paradigm of Educational Knowledge; 1. The Price we Pay for Technology; 2. Why Educational Knowledge is Neither Theory Free Nor Value Free; 3. Educational Ideology and Indoctrination; 4. The Reductionist Ghost in the Educational Machines; 5. Towards a Reconstruction of the Foundations of Environmental Education; 6. Extending the Boundaries of Educational Knowledge; 7. The Epistemic Resacrilization of Nature
The health of our global environment is increasingly affected by our technological advance - rain, rivers, lakes, forests, soil, climate all suffer at human hands. Laura and Cotton suggest that the society committed to the technological transformation of the natural environment into an artificial one, is also, paradoxically, a society committed to its own destruction. Currently, one of the major concerns of environmental education is to address this problem more concertedly than hitherto. This book represents a radical departure from the traditional approach to environmental education. It argues that the knowledge base behind current teaching is flawed, and the resulting mind-sets and attitudes are often counterproductive to the aims of environmental education.
