Against Nature: The Concept of Nature in Critical Theory

From the series Against the Grain C.S. Soong interviews Steven Vogel, author of Against Nature: The Concept of Nature in Critical Theory. 

It's a claim that has wide resonance on the left: we humans are alienated from nature, with profound consequences both for the way we think and for the health of the planet. But what if Steven Vogel is right, that it makes no sense to speak of being alienated from nature? According to Vogel, another kind of alienation is at play, one that we can and must address.

A History of Earth Day

Earth Day special programming continues with an interview with Adam Rome, author of "The Genius of Earth Day: How a 1970 Teach-in Unexpectedly Made the First Green Generation." 

Rome explaines how Senator Gaylord Nelson’s simple idea for a nationwide teach-in about the environment grew into “an educational experience as well as a political demonstration.” Manifesting in the form of over 12,000 local events, the teach-in catalyzed a limited effort by disparate environmental groups into a powerful movement that engaged politicians, youth, the media, the educational system, and everyday people in an explosion of interest and activity around protecting the Earth

Each year 11 Batswana students are given the chance to come to a private American or Swiss high school for their senior  year. These schools range from Deerfield Academy in Boston to Catlin Gabel in Portland. With no  family and no friends, these 18 year olds are thrust into a new country, a city and a new school. My name is Monkgogi Otlhogile and I have been an international student at Catlin Gabel for the past 9 months.  My biggest worry as my year at Catlin came to a close is that no one will have documented the diverse experiences we had at our various schools. I decided that I would try and get as many people's experiences recorded so that we could forever remember these 10 months.  In an attempt to capture their stories, I interviewed Tebo Molosiwa, Arsema Berhanu, Valentina Muraleedaharan as well as Mbakisi Gopolang about their year abroad. What  I found and heard from these students was funny, shocking and sometimes tear jerking.

Readings from Rachel Carson's book 'Silent Spring'

Although their role will probably always be less celebrated than wars, marches, riots or stormy political campaigns, it is books that have at times most powerfully influenced social change in American life. Thomas Paine's Common Sense galvanized radical sentiment in the early days of the American revolution; Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe roused Northern antipathy to slavery in the decade leading up to the Civil War; and Rachel Carson's Silent Spring, which in 1962 exposed the hazards of the pesticide DDT, eloquently questioned humanity's faith in technological progress and helped set the stage for the environmental movement.
Carson, a renowned nature author and a former marine biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, was uniquely equipped to create so startling and inflammatory a book. A native of rural Pennsylvania, she had grown up with an enthusiasm for nature matched only by her love of writing and poetry. The educational brochures she wrote for the Fish and Wildlife Service, as well as her published books and magazine articles, were characterized by meticulous research and a poetic evocation of her subject.
 
We go now to a reading of excerpts from Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring.
 
Thank you to the KBOO volunteers who helped with this reading: Chris Andreae, Liam Delta, Beth Crawford, Kellyn Gross, and Ani Haines. A special thanks to the Natural Resources Defense Council for the introduction text.
