Research on Environmental stewardship using Graeco-Roman Philosophers’ Idea on nature as foil

A Humanities project in New Zealand

PhiloPolute

The research will attempt to proffer conceptual foundations, clarifications and understanding towards ameliorating environmental degradation. The research is titled: “Interrogating the Contemporary Arguments for Environmental Stewardship with Historical Understandings of Nature. Especially those of the Ancient Graeco-Roman Philosophers”. The inspiration to research on this issue is partly derived from the unrest in the oil producing part of my country, Nigeria. Hence, the case of the environmental degradation (gas flaring and oil spillage) prevalent in the Niger-Delta region of Nigeria; will be employed to illustrate a larger philosophical claim on man and nature. It is a Ph.d. programme that I intend to complete in 3years. A dream that has left me sleepless…

“It would be exceedingly difficult to overestimate the important part that Teachers take in the development of the life of the nation. They exercise their art, not on materials of this world which pass away, but upon the human soul, where it will remain through all eternity” – Calvin Coolidge

What is your motivation for doing a PhD?

My motivation is my passion for study, research and teaching. Hence, my reason to join the academia. Doing a Ph.D. therefore, provides a better platform for my research activity, with the end result of impacting lives and society by teaching, researching, mentoring and subtly addressing gender stereotypes.

Why did you choose your research topic/title

It’s informed generally bythe global problem of environmental degradation and particularly by the unrest in the oil producing part of my country. Extant researches that use ancient thoughts on nature tointerrogate the contemporary environmental challenges are not sufficient. These ancient postulations hold great significancefor the present challenge of environmental degradation.

Your achievments

1. Successful publication of four papers in learned academic journals. 2. Excelling in my M.A. in spite of the health challenge I had. 3. One of the winners of an International Bioethics Essay Competition. 4. Fruitful tenure as the Class Governor and Electoral Secretary respectively during my M.A programme.

What difference will this research make in your life and the lives of others?

The research will interrogate the contemporary arguments for environmental stewardship with historical understandings of nature, especially those of Ancient Graeco-Roman Philosophers. It will attempt to proffer conceptual foundations, clarifications and understanding towards ameliorating environmental degradation. The end result which is to ensure that our air, water and land are put to better use and for our children; a more economically vibrant future. I hope the findings of the research will improve lives and contribute towards a more productive management of the environment. It will be a dream come true while providing a more robust platform for my academic activities.
