Exploring philosophy: faking nature

Free statement of participation on completion

Commercial exploitation of nature, such as mining, fracking, or generating hydro-electric power, often damages the way the natural environment looks. What if the environment could be restored to exactly how it looked before? Would that mean no damage had been done, that the natural environment was as valuable as it had been before the commercial exploitation? This free course, Exploring philosophy: faking nature, examines the 'restoration thesis', and provides an insight into philosophical study at postgraduate level.
