Consilience: “…the sciences, humanities, and
arts have a common goal: to give a purpose to
understanding the details, to lend to all inquirers
a conviction, far deeper than a mere working
proposition, that the world is orderly and can be
explained by a small number of natural laws."
EO Wilson




Culture: Consistently changing and sometimes contradictory values
   “…the eternal foment generated by Multilevel Selection…”

“…be in nothing as so
 Depending on your

  wetland definition and
  source, 70%-98% of

A General Education Service Learning Capstone
Principles of Academic Service Learning
There are four basic guiding questions to ask about the principles of service
learning:

Engagement—does the service component meet a public good? How will the
community be consulted and how will the campus-community boundaries be
negotiated?

Reflection—is there a mechanism that encourages students to link their service
experience to course content and to reflect upon why the service is important?

Reciprocity—how will students and the community teach and learn from one
another?

Public Dissemination—how will the service work be presented or returned to
the public?

Aldo Leopold / Robinson Jeffers
“The Shack” and Tor House
“The Land Ethic”


  “A thing is right when it tends to
  preserve the integrity, stability, and
  beauty of the biotic community. It
  is wrong when it tends otherwise.”


                   (Sand County Almanac 224-25)
The Land Ethic’s key terms:

As for “beauty,” it was, in Leopold’s view, an
attribute of lands that possessed stability and
integrity.
Integrity, stability, and beauty: they were three ways
of describing one object—healthy land—in terms of
its interrelated parts, its nutrient cycling, and its
pleasing appearance to the eye, ear, and soul.

               (Newton, Aldo Leopold’s Odyssey 347)
from “The Answer”

      Integrity is wholeness, the greatest beauty is
Organic wholeness, the wholeness of life and things, the
divine beauty of the universe. Love that, not man Apart
from that, or else you will share man’s pitiful confusions, or
drown in despair when his days darken.

                                                   (CP 2: 536)
“Conceptual Restorationism” in Sand County
Almanac
  Lawrence Buell writes, “Environmental writing does
  not literally repair the biosphere, does not literally do
  anything directly to the environment. But . . . it tries to
  practice a conceptual restorationism in reorienting the
  partially denaturized reader not to a primordial
  nature, which we cannot recover either in fact or in
  fantasy, but to an artifactual version of environment
  designed to evoke place-sense” (Environmental
  Imagination 267).
from “Bixby’s Landing”
The laborers are gone, but what a good multitude
Is here in return: the rich-lichened rock, the rose-tipped stone-crop, the
         constant
Ocean's voices, the cloud-lighted space.
The kilns are cold on the hill but here in the rust of the broken boiler
Quick lizards lighten, and a rattle-snake flows
Down the cracked masonry, over the crumbled fire-brick. In the rotting
         timbers
And roofless platforms all the free companies
Of windy grasses have root and make seed; wild buckwheat blooms in the
fat
Weather-slacked lime from the bursted barrels.
Two duckhawks darting in the sky of their cliff-hung nest are the voice of
the      headland.
Wine-hearted solitude, our mother the wilderness,
Men's failures are often as beautiful as men's triumphs, but your
returnings
Are even more precious than your first presence.
2 Urban Wetland Restoration Projects
 From The Purse-Seine:
 “I cannot tell you how beautiful the city appeared,
 and a little terrible.”

Consilience on the Coast

  • 1. Consilience on the Coast  Jeffers  Urban Wetlands Restoration  Service Learning Dr. George Hart ~ CSULB Taylor Parker ~ Tidal Influence Peter Stearns ~ CSULB Robinson Jeffers Conference May 27, 2012
  • 2. EO Wilson Consilience: “…the sciences, humanities, and arts have a common goal: to give a purpose to understanding the details, to lend to all inquirers a conviction, far deeper than a mere working proposition, that the world is orderly and can be explained by a small number of natural laws."
  • 3. EO Wilson Culture: Consistently changing and sometimes contradictory values “…the eternal foment generated by Multilevel Selection…” The job of the: Natural Sciences Social Sciences and Humanities To Explain What is Going on To Think Out and Deal With It
  • 4. Southern California “…be in nothing as so  Depending on your moderate as in love of wetland definition and source, 70%-98% of man…” coastal wetlands are gone
  • 5.
  • 6. English 444: Literature and Environment A General Education Service Learning Capstone
  • 7. Principles of Academic Service Learning There are four basic guiding questions to ask about the principles of service learning: Engagement—does the service component meet a public good? How will the community be consulted and how will the campus-community boundaries be negotiated? Reflection—is there a mechanism that encourages students to link their service experience to course content and to reflect upon why the service is important? Reciprocity—how will students and the community teach and learn from one another? Public Dissemination—how will the service work be presented or returned to the public?
  • 8. English 444 students at Colorado Lagoon Restoration, Long Beach
  • 9. Aldo Leopold / Robinson Jeffers
  • 10. “The Shack” and Tor House
  • 11. “The Land Ethic” “A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability, and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise.” (Sand County Almanac 224-25)
  • 12. The Land Ethic’s key terms: As for “beauty,” it was, in Leopold’s view, an attribute of lands that possessed stability and integrity. Integrity, stability, and beauty: they were three ways of describing one object—healthy land—in terms of its interrelated parts, its nutrient cycling, and its pleasing appearance to the eye, ear, and soul. (Newton, Aldo Leopold’s Odyssey 347)
  • 13. from “The Answer” Integrity is wholeness, the greatest beauty is Organic wholeness, the wholeness of life and things, the divine beauty of the universe. Love that, not man Apart from that, or else you will share man’s pitiful confusions, or drown in despair when his days darken. (CP 2: 536)
  • 14. “Conceptual Restorationism” in Sand County Almanac Lawrence Buell writes, “Environmental writing does not literally repair the biosphere, does not literally do anything directly to the environment. But . . . it tries to practice a conceptual restorationism in reorienting the partially denaturized reader not to a primordial nature, which we cannot recover either in fact or in fantasy, but to an artifactual version of environment designed to evoke place-sense” (Environmental Imagination 267).
  • 15. from “Bixby’s Landing” The laborers are gone, but what a good multitude Is here in return: the rich-lichened rock, the rose-tipped stone-crop, the constant Ocean's voices, the cloud-lighted space. The kilns are cold on the hill but here in the rust of the broken boiler Quick lizards lighten, and a rattle-snake flows Down the cracked masonry, over the crumbled fire-brick. In the rotting timbers And roofless platforms all the free companies Of windy grasses have root and make seed; wild buckwheat blooms in the fat Weather-slacked lime from the bursted barrels. Two duckhawks darting in the sky of their cliff-hung nest are the voice of the headland. Wine-hearted solitude, our mother the wilderness, Men's failures are often as beautiful as men's triumphs, but your returnings Are even more precious than your first presence.
