Summary
American philosopher John Dewey considered all human endeavors to be one with the natural world. In his writings, particularly Art as Experience (1934), Dewey insists on the primacy of the environment in aesthetic experience. Dewey?s conception of environment includes both the natural and the man-made. The World in Which We Occur highlights this notion in order to define?pragmatist ecology,? a practice rooted in the interface of the cultural and the natural. Neil Browne finds this to be a significant feature of some of the most important ecological writing of the last century
