Hack # 1 JAH

20150203_143907 Dustbowl

For my hack I hacked my philosophy lecture by using hermeneutics. As a sustainability major I tend to look at history through a environmentally minded lens. These pictures demonstrate how westward expansion and the seemingly endless supply of resources that are for our use are in fact ethically ingrained into the American way of thinking. In my philosophy class Professor Atterton called to our attention the fact that when the dustbowl hit people just figured they could continue to move west and use the resources available there. This mentality posses a problem in modern day society, we must rethink the anthropocentric ethics we hold if we hope to sustain human life on earth.  Jeff Hoyos
