The Expanding Concept of Environment.
Farness, Sanford S.
The need to focus on a unified environment as the social space framework of human action, brought about by the merging state of rural and urban areas, introduces this paper. A brief interpretation of our current environmental problems is presented followed by a description of some historic choices in cultural values and modes of knowledge which have played major roles in shaping human action in our environment and our resultant problems. Lastly, suggestions are given for how our concepts of environment and man and our research, teaching, and planning must be deepened and amplified in order to meet the needs of the future. (BL)
