"Nature” is what we see – The Hill – the Afternoon – Squirrel – Eclipse – the Bumble bee – Nay – Nature is Heaven –
“Nature” is what We hear – The Bobolink – the Sea – Thunder – the Cricket – Nay – Nature is Harmony –
“Nature” is what We know – But have no Art to say – So impotent our Wisdom is To Her Sincerity –
Emily Dickinson, 1863
Deforestation, overpopulation, pesticide use, toxic oceans, endangered species, global warming. How are we to make sense of the many environmental problems facing the Earth today?
Although the sciences provide a factual account of environmental threats and ways of countering them, scientific facts alone seem not to be enough. For it is the case that artists, writers, filmmakers, and even scientists find themselves turning again and again to their imaginations to respond to the environmental predicaments of society. For example, Rachel Carson opens Silent Spring (1962) – the book that launched the modern environmental movement – with “A Fable for Tomorrow,” a fairytale in effect that shocks us with the future we face if the insidious harm of chemical pollution goes unchecked.
James Lovelock, the British climate scientist who developed “Gaia” – the hypothesis that the Earth reacts like a living organism in regulating the conditions suitable for life – has recourse to a pre-Olympian ancient Greek deity, a personification of the Earth. They may be doing what English Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley powerfully described 200 years ago as an essentially human and creative impulse: “to imagine that which we know.” In what other ways, then, have creative minds imagined – in essays, books, and movies – the very idea of nature, the place of humans in it, and their power to change the environment?
In what other ways, then, have creative minds imagined—in essays, books, and movies—the very idea of nature, the place of humans in it, and their power to change the environment?
These are some of the questions considered by the freshmen taking my course, “Humans, Nature, and the Environment,” which I teach in the Harvard College Writing Program. Expository writing, or “Expos” for short, has a long history at Harvard, going back to the nineteenth century. Generations of alumni have all had to take Expos, since it is a required, foundational course, preparing them as academic writers and critical thinkers for their other courses in the College and, indeed, for life beyond Harvard. All Expos courses are designed to instruct students in the skills of academic argument, which is to say, how to develop a contestable claim in response to some primary source – whether it be an essay, a book, a movie, or an artwork – and how to argue that claim persuasively in the form of a well-crafted essay that carefully analyzes textual evidence.
The course themes in Expos differ markedly, to be sure, depending on an instructor’s academic interests. The “green” theme of my course comes out of my background in Romanticism and American literature. What’s more, it comes out of my own fascination with the protean idea of nature, which, as French philosopher Pierre Hadot shows, has a long and rich history. Just as our sense of the world around us is in part shaped by these underlying ideas of nature, so too are the controversies about the plight of the environment in the twenty-first century.
“Humans, Nature, and the Environment” is divided into three units of increasing length and complexity. In the first unit, the students interpret Henry David Thoreau’s seminal nature essay, “Walking” (1862), after going for a walk at Walden Pond . They then argue their interpretations in short essays that closely engage with Thoreau’s language and ideas. In his essay, Thoreau ponders the value of wildness, imaginatively transforming American westward expansion into a personal spiritual quest and re-characterizing the age-old figure of “Mother Nature” as “vast, savage, [and] howling.”
In the second unit, the students critically compare the literary approaches of two books by scientists which belong to the genre of popular environmentalism: Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring (1962) and James Lovelock’s The Revenge of Gaia (2006). To focus their arguments, the students use a “lens” which they develop from secondary sources—either an essay by literary scholar M. H. Abrams on the Romantics’ vision of nature or extracts from various texts on environmental ethics. On the face of it, the two books seem very different. But the use of a lens affords the students the opportunity to uncover some unlikely connections.
In the third unit, the students write longer essays after developing research projects about one of two documentary movies that examine relationships between humans and animals—Werner Herzog’s Grizzly Man (2005) in which the filmmaker takes issue with the self-proclaimed environmentalist Timothy Treadwell who strove to protect bears in the Alaskan wilderness, and Gabriela Cowperthwaite’s Blackfish (2013) in which she delivers a brilliant polemic against the SeaWorld corporation and its treatment of captive killer whales. Both films implicitly explore the creative problem of anthropomorphism—that is, the attribution of human qualities to animals and other non-human entities.
Although the sciences provide a factual account of environmental threats and ways of countering them, scientific facts alone seem not to be enough. For it is the case that artists, writers, filmmakers, and even scientists find themselves turning again and again to their imaginations to respond to the environmental predicaments of society.
The eight outstanding essays included here were written by freshmen for the second unit of “Humans, Nature, and the Environment” – the two most recent are from the fall semester of 2017, and the other six are from earlier semesters. As academic essays, they do a number of things well: each has a strong yet contestable thesis that is urgently argued throughout; each adroitly sets up and enters into an existing scholarly debate; and each sheds new light both on Carson’s and Lovelock’s books and on the bigger debate through carefully working with evidence.
The first essay, “Separate and Unequal: An Examination of the Spiritual Tension in Ecocentrism,” is by Arielle Blacklow, Class of 2021, and considers the spiritual and quasi-divine dimensions of much ecocentric writing, arguing that ultimately this dimension undermines the fundamental equality between humans and nature that ecocentrism presupposes. The second essay, “The Relationship between Science and Romanticism in Popular Environmental Writing,” is by Alexandru Spiride, Class of 2021, and looks at how modern environmental writers make use of Romantic metaphors, claiming that they do so differently from the Romantic poets because they use science to support their metaphors.
The third essay, “The One Life and Science: A New Relationship,” is by Sydney Record, Class of 2020, and looks at the Romantic idea of the One Life as it appears in environmentalism, revealing how this idea is now supported by the science that proves the interconnectedness of life on Earth. The fourth essay, “Extending Environmental Ethics through Fear,” is by Laura Cegarra, Class of 2020, and argues that both Carson and Lovelock use fear to supplement their ethical stances and so motivate readers to act on behalf of the environment.
The fifth essay, “The Intertwining of Romanticism and Science through Metaphor,” is by Oliver George, Class of 2020, and explores the relationship of Romanticism and science in popular environmental writing, arguing that the expression of science through metaphor strengthens respect for the natural world and appreciation of the interconnectedness of nature. The sixth essay, “Ethical Anthropocentrism: Making Environmentalism Relatable,” is by Joseph Winters, Class of 2020, and examines ethically anthropocentric representations of human relationships found in Silent Spring and The Revenge of Gaia, showing how these representations help to connect with readers and make environmentalism more understandable.
The seventh essay, “Metaphor and Visions of Home in Environmental Writing: From the Romantic Poets to Silent Spring and The Revenge of Gaia ,” is by Alison W. Steinbach, Class of 2019, and examines the use of Romantic metaphor in the two books, especially the metaphor of home and how the two writers use it in a significantly different way from the Romantics. The eighth essay, “Daring to Care: Deep Ecology and Effective Popular Environmentalism,” is by Zeke Benshirim, Class of 2019, and considers the relationship of Lovelock to Carson with regards to environmental ethics, focusing on Norwegian philosopher Arne Naess’s concept of “deep ecology.”

Nature And Environment Essay
Show More An environment is the natural surrounding where the human life grow, develop and end. Environment is a gift by the nature to nourish the life on the earth. Everything that we use to continue our life comes from the environment that we live in. Our environment plays a very significant role in making possible of life on the earth. Our relationship with the environment is very important as our life is possible only because of it. As environment plays great role in our life we have an ethical, moral responsibility towards it. Nature can be seen as beautiful and peaceful but it also inspires fear in man who had to fight it in order to survive. As people are being separated from nature, nature is in great harm. Modern technology has given humans the great power which has also effected the nature in a great way. Due to all the modern technology nature is being depreciated day by day and humans are facing problems like acid rain, climate change, depletion of ozone layer and many calamities. These man created environmental problems cannot be solved by technology alone. With our population at 7 billion and growing, we have …show more content… People began building cities, industries which led people distancing from the nature. We developed ignorance of our role and relationship with nature. People became more techno centrism. They have the faith in technology and believe that they have control over nature. They do know environmental problem exist, but rather than knowing technology is harming the nature they think technology and science can save the environment. People became more selfish and thought they created the environment and started limiting, ignoring other species and nonlife entities that has huge values to humans. People started building house for themselves while destroying the house for other living beings. They started using the resources in a massive way thinking everything was made for
The role of nature in american urbanization.
This mindset would prove to be detrimental to the environment. By only focusing on the majestic icons of nature, humans inadvertently were overlooking the elements of natural beauty located within everyday life that prove necessary to their lifestyle. When humans focus only on the elaborate aspects of nature, they contradict their own stance on the importance of the environment to living a fulfilled life. They say that wilderness is essential to embracing our humanity, yet they allow thousands of acres of land to be deforested, saturated with harsh chemicals, and polluted because it does not fit the description of a grand icon which spiritually impacts the soul. In his essay “Trouble with Wilderness”, William Cronon states, “indeed, my principle objection to wilderness is that it may teach us to be dismissive or even contemptuous of such humble places and experiences.” Just because organisms, such as, trees or fields of grain occur more frequently than mountains or canyons in the urbanized lives of humans does not lessen their importance.…
Persuasive Essay On Animal Agriculture
We live on a beautiful and life giving planet that we don’t want to see being destroyed but still it seems that we carry out extreme and illogical activities that counter that presumption. Humans by nature are selfish and although that is something we cannot change anytime soon, there needs to be some sort of education for people to understand their actions that they play on the environment. We only have one planet and we should take care of it. The incredible devastation that animal agriculture is causing to our planet is alarming and not enough is being done about it. The E.P.A.…

PharmaCARE’s initiative pledge and their current actions are contradicting. On one hand, they recycle and other green initiatives. However on the other hand, they are anti-environmental since they are against environmental laws and regulations.

Rolston's Arguments For Protecting The Environment
He proposes the idea that the best way to preserve our environment is to be active and manage how much we invade what is left of the natural world. He uses examples of how policies put in place around the world have worked to prevent some populations of animals from going extinct. Rolston also makes a good point that the human population is rapidly growing too much and requiring humans to take land away from the natural world just for the sake of expansion not recognizing the diversity of the land. (Rolston 459-460). However, the points that Attfield criticizes makes it so Rolston’s argument for policies is not perfect and leaves things vague like his definition for development and what should be done about the humans’ overpopulation.…
Synthesis Of Sustainability
I now have a broader understanding of what sustainability is and how it can be different from person to person. I always thought that recycling and using different sources of electricity was the best way to help "save the planet." I had no idea the MEA report existed and was informing people of the problems humanity is causing to, not only, the environment, but other people as well. Not everyone has the same opinions though because that depends on people's worldviews and how they see sustainability. I am more aware of problems that climate change, deforestation, and even lawn care can cause and I want to be more vocal and active in trying to prevent these problems.…

The natural world is the lifeline of the humans that often mistreat it. My concern is the affect of architecture on the planet for centuries to come.

Essay On Importance Of Nature
I think its mankind’s instinct to improve his/her living lifestyle and chances of survival at the expense of other natural beings (be it animals, plants, trees, etc.). But sometimes we don’t realize the prominence of things until we lose them. Without having what is natural in life we won’t have artificial creations. Let us take for example, the automotive industry, which relies heavily on a multiple set of laws, such as the laws of thermodynamics, aerodynamics, geometrical aspects, motion and many others. None of these would’ve existed if it weren’t for the laws of nature.…
Findings by archaeologists can also reveal the ways in which humans interacted with their environment and if such interactions caused major harm or just major alteration to the environment. Such problems as deforestation, pollution, and habitat loss are reasons why many people advocate for the complete pristine and natural preservation of land. They believe that the environment cannot heal itself until all human contact goes away. It is easy for this myth to exist when one does not consider the effects of completely cutting off interaction with the land. (Redman 1999:32).…

Essay On Nature And Environment
Why should you protect the environment? We need to protect the environment as we depend on it completely. If don’t have plants, which are part of the environment, we cannot live as it provides us with oxygen and food. If don’t have sunlight we won’t get energy to grow. If we don’t have land we could not have lived in buildings and houses. Environment is our surrounding which includes everything from a non-living to a living being.
There are two kinds namely the natural environment and Built environment. An environment essay necessarily has to focus on these points. In actual parlance if one has to describe a natural environment it is nee that has natural existence and the built is one that man is responsible for like the dams cities etc. You can obtain more particulars from the Nature and Environment Essay. The natural atmosphere is being polluted due to the unnatural factors.
While natural causes like volcano’s have its own turn in causing pollution it is the man made ones that are more rampant. It is the reckless and the caustic human nature that is primarily responsible for the environmental pollution. It is the self-centered humans that are causing more destruction to the environment. An Environment Essay should contain the causes that destroy ecosystem. It is natural for every human being to live in the circumstances they are born and any changes to it causes a lot of trouble.
Built environment, which lacks natural components, has become quite significant in today’s era. There is a lot of environmental peril that has been responsible for the problems associated with mother earth like Global warming Land degradation pollution etc. Global Warming is defined as the increase in the average temperature of the earth near surface air and ocean since the mid-20th century and its projected continuation. There is a lot of heat caused to the earth due to the greenhouse asses that get rapt in the sun’s rays thereby causing global warming. You may get more details about Global Warming in the Global Warming Essay.
A writer needs to specify the causes that affect the environmental corrosion. It is the growth in population and also the economic advancement that has added to pollution as well. Every living and non-living thing is being affected by this so one must understand that biophysical environment is meant for all and understand the importance Of ecological balance. It is mandatory that the Environmental Essay has all the essential things effecting the pollution and how one can take steps to control it. The consumption of petroleum has to be brought down by one and all.
The first step towards reducing our dependence on petroleum is to understand what products are made from petroleum. It is necessary that one takes sufficient measures to reduce the environmental degradation. It is better that we look for natural solutions like shift to a more fuel efficient vehicle make use of paper bags try to economize by using the car pool or public transport, go by walk or use a bicycle, recycle things etc. It is the responsibility of every person in checking the causes that affect the environmental disaster and play a positive role in improving it and these things have also got to be mentioned. One must realize the importance of a healthy environment and that it is for his/her own benefit to protect it and to take measures to make the world clean and green because as the proverb says “We won’t have a society if we destroy the environment”.
The Importance of Experiencing Nature The more technologically sway our society becomes and as our cities become larger and more urbanize our connection with nature gets weaker and eager. It is difficult to remember the natural beauty of a 100 year old oak tree while you dwell in the city where you are lucky to see a tree every three blocks. Our attitudes (especially people who live in very urbanize areas) tend to think that civilization surrounds nature instead of “wilderness [as] the element in which we live encased in civilization. “(l) I am not stating that our technological advances are a bad thing, but we must remember the importance of nature. People need to experience nature.
One reason is that the beauty of nature excites our senses, but it also is a perfect place to experience personal growth and meditation. From a logical standpoint though, learning more about nature can lead to growth as a society. As humans, we are constantly looking to be awed. We look to beauty to do this. Nature offers the most pure form of beauty.
Nature is stunning, yet not distracting. Our senses are enlightened by the magnificence of it yet we are not so distracted that we cannot think of anything else. It’s not the flash of a million colorful lights or the awe inspiring power of a larger than life sky scrapper. This kind of beauty demands your attention while the beauty of tauter is humbly offered. A baby is a great example of our attraction to nature or just natural things in general.
When there is a baby in a room full of people, people cannot help but stare and coo over it. We are attracted to them. I think a big reason for this is because they act so natural. They are not analyzing their actions, they are completely uninhibited. Society has not shaped them and told them what is right and wrong and how they should act.
Everything is much more appealing in the most basic, natural form. Nature is the closest thing we have to perfection. There is no denying the fact…

The natural surroundings that enable life to thrive, nurture, and destroy on our planet called earth are referred to as an environment. The natural environment is vital to the survival of life on Earth, allowing humans, animals, and other living things to thrive and evolve naturally. However, our ecosystem is being harmed as a result of certain wicked and selfish human actions. It is the most essential issue, and everyone should understand how to safeguard our environment and maintain the natural balance on this planet for life to continue to exist.
Nature provides an environment that nourishes life on the planet. The environment encompasses everything humans need to live, including water, air, sunshine, land, plants, animals, forests, and other natural resources. Our surroundings play a critical role in enabling the existence of healthy life on the planet. However, due to man-made technical advancements in the current period, our environment is deteriorating day by day. As a result, environmental contamination has risen to the top of our priority list.
Environmental pollution has a detrimental impact on our everyday lives in a variety of ways, including socially, physically, economically, emotionally, and cognitively. Contamination of the environment causes a variety of ailments that can last a person’s entire life. It is not a problem of a neighborhood or a city; it is a global issue that cannot be handled by a single person’s efforts. It has the potential to end life in a day if it is not appropriately handled. Every ordinary citizen should participate in the government’s environmental protection effort.
Between June 5 and June 16, World Environment Day is commemorated to raise awareness about the environment and to educate people about its importance. On this day, awareness initiatives are held in a variety of locations.
The environment is made up of plants, animals, birds, reptiles, insects, water bodies, fish, humans, trees, microbes, and many other things. Furthermore, they all contribute to the ecosystem.
The physical, social, and cultural environments are the three categories of environments. Besides, various scientists have defined different types and numbers of environments.
1. Do not leave rubbish in public areas. 2. Minimize the use of plastic 3. Items should be reduced, reused, and recycled. 4. Prevent water and soil contamination

“Humans, Nature, and the Environment” is divided into three units of increasing length and complexity. In the first unit, the students interpret Henry David Thoreau’s seminal nature essay, “Walking” (1862), after going for a walk at Walden Pond.
