Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1972 
261 p. 

An examination of the concept "environment" leads to a number of questions that must be answered to reduce ambiguity of any particular use of the term: "What entity in the Universe is being used as the referent for 'environment'?""What is the purpose of considering that entity's environment?""What parts of the Universe external to the entity used as the referent are relevant, that is, have an effect, related to the purpose, on the entity?" These questions need to be applied to any use of "environment," including "environmental education." When "environmental education" is being discussed, ambiguity can be reduced further if the type of education--in, about, or for (the preservation of) the environment, or any of the combinations of two or more of these types--is specified. (Education for and education about the environment are distinguished by their goals; education in the environment is a pedagogic technique.) A transdisciplinary approach, based upon a strong foundation in the separate disciplines, is most likely to be effective in achieving goals for the environment. The arguments are illustrated by reference to existing definitions and programs and by an example of the possible nature of a curriculum based upon the effects of external parameters on an individual's well-being.
