  • Childhood's End Analysis

    In this section of the course we have been moving away from the frameworks and thought traps in EcoMind, and into accountability and action taking. We have examined this process through several readings in Andrés Edwards book, Thriving Beyond Sustainability: pathways to a resilient society, as well as the article “Childhood’s End” by Tom Prugh. Edwards examines how we as a society can do more than live sustainably; how we can truly begin to thrive in our society and go beyond simply creating ecosystems that are suitable for habitat. From the Edwards’ readings, I have chosen the first chapter, Lessons from Our Ancestors, because I find it to be of the most importance and relevance in our society today due to the current issues revolving around…

    New Athens is symbolic in “Childhood’s End” because it portrays a decaying of a utopian society in which everything seems to be perfect and peaceful. In the book Athens is described as a type of colony in which is “gathered…to build group with its own artistic traditions” (Clarke 134).

  • Summary Of Immanuel Kant's Categorical Imperative

    Without ends, laws would be useless, because there would be no rational beings to make them valid. All rational beings within society are their own ends, and in that, they are the lawmakers.

Society is to act only on the universality of the morality, that they must “treat people as ends and not mere means” (McCloskey p391). While each rational being may be another’s means, also individually…
