Humanities

The engagement of the humanities in the Andrews Forest program, now nearly a decade long, doesn't fit neatly into any one category of activity. It is part basic inquiry (basic humanities parallels basic science), part science journalism and public outreach, and in part an education effort. This lack of tidy fit with our goal/objective framework in no way diminishes the significance and potential impact of the Long-Term Ecological Reflections program. In the words of the mission statement of the Spring Creek Project for Ideas, Nature, and the Written Word, our humanities collaborators, we wish to: "bring together the practical wisdom of the environmental sciences, the clarity of philosophical analysis, and the creative, expressive power of the written word, to find new ways to understand and re-imagine our relation to the natural world."
