These notes are based on lecturing done over nearly 40 years (1966 – 2005) at the University of East London (UEL), and, since 2008, for the Workers’ Education Association (WEA). The older notes cover mainly political philosophy and the study of social movements.
Recently there is more widespread awareness of the crisis facing the natural environment. My activities are increasingly devoted to this, for the Workers’ Educational Association (WEA), through Friends of the Earth, and in guest lectures.
These notes are in three groups:
(i) Current teaching:
WEA course: ‘Protecting the Planet’
Week 1: Introduction
Weeks 2 & 3: some key industries
Week 4: strategies for action
Week 7: global warming: effects
Week 8: species decline
Week 9: energy policies
Week 10: the environment movement
