Global worlds of ideas - inspired nature?

The understanding of nature of many indigenous groups is linked to the attribution of spiritual meaning to certain places and geological formations. For these reasons, they advocate the protection of certain landscapes.

But also in other cultures there are notions, ideas and practices that proceed from an animated nature, for example in adapted shamanism. The search for supposedly 'old' traditions, but also the adaptation of foreign ideas are common phenomena.

In the context of the global environmental discussion, movements can be identified that campaign for the 'rights of nature', right up to the legally achieved subject status of mountains or rivers.

How does science approach these topics and developments with its methods? Discussions, quizzes and round tables give you an insight into phenomena, questions and methods of cultural studies.
