The papers gathered in this inaugural volume are drawn primarily from the 2010-2011 Lecture Series on the theme, “Nature’s Humans.” In addition to the philosophical essays, social commentaries, and scientific analyses that were originally presented as part of the series, we have included herein a selection of creative works (poems and stories) that complement the interpretive discussion of the art exhibition, which itself incorporates images from the juried show; and we have included a chapter of selected photographs that stand on their own. Thus, this inaugural volume, true to the interdisciplinary spirit of EKU Chautauqua, contains a range of approaches to the question of the relation of human beings to nature.
