The old idea of nature as already given is challenged by a
growing consciousness of the anthropogenic origin of our
modern nature. We cannot any longer rely on nature as an
unlimited resource for our survival, so we are forced to
develop radical other ways to access nature than the
techno-scientific ways which have dominated in Modernity.

In this third volume of the collection Philosophy of
Education, sponsored by the International Institute
of Philosophy (Paris), a number of philosophers advance
their ideas of nature and how it should be conveyed to new
generations in the educational system. The book presents
aesthetic, spiritual, artistic, embodied and materialistic
dimensions of nature in education, and it provides analyses
of how these can be expressed in citizen education, in the
ethics of food production, and in our relation to animals.
