1. Compare and contrast two-three views of nature presented in the readings. For example, you could compare a scientific view such as Lewis’ with a more spiritual or religious view such as Momaday’s or Erlich’s. Be sure to first describe the view, citing your source and then analyze how they diverge and overlap. Include a discussion of the potential implications of the view. Explain if you agree with each view and why. Use at least two of the readings from the textbook or handed out in class. You may also use other reliable sources and include your own views of nature as long as they are clearly articulated. Write 5-6 pages. Include a list of works cited at the end of your paper.
2. Describe two to three key (human-made) problems existing in our global environment. You may choose problems described in Scheid’s essay or other ones with which you are familiar, as long as you include information about it from a reliable source. Analyze how these problems were created, and critically evaluate the attitudes toward nature that they manifest. Then propose possible solutions to them, discussing whether each problem has a purely technological solution or whether a change in attitude toward the environment (and/or nature) is necessary. Explain. Use at least two readings from class and any other reliable sources you find. Include a works cited page at the end of your essay. Write 5-6 pages.
