I'm interested in the environment from a philosophical perspective. I'm intrigued by such questions as: what is an environment? Do environments contain social as well as natural elements? To what extent do environments enter into human life and to what extent does human life shape and create environments? Can we separate human beings from their environments or, conversely, environments from human beings?
