March 28.   The Perils of Individualism.  Plentiful evidence suggests that degradation is worsened by the embrace of liberal individualism. Should we reduce our presumptions of autonomy and free choice and reconceive ourselves chiefly as members of a larger land community? We’ll revisit briefly the tragedies of the commons and of fragmentation before exploring new ways to conceive the human place in nature. Special guest, environmental philosopher J. Baird Callicott
