AbstractThe class is about the concept of individuality and how it relates to wilderness both from a historical and a philosophical perspective. Our ideas of wilderness strongly inform the natural and technological sciences. Having a closer look at what defines wilderness therefore helps to get a better picture of what can and should not be done to nature.
