De quoi parle-t-on lorsque l’on parle d’environnement ? Existe-t-il une crise écologique ? L’environnement se résume-t-il à la pollution ? Est-on vraiment fondé à parler de risques environnementaux ? L’environnement a-t-il affaire à la politique et si oui pourquoi ? Pourquoi et à partir de quand a-t-on pu parler d’écologie politique ? Quelles en sont les différentes expressions ? Les démocraties et leurs expressions courantes ne suffisent-elles pas à répondre aux problèmes écologiques ? Et si ce n’est pas le cas, quels sont les apports éventuels et potentiels de l’écologie politique ? Ce cours se propose à répondre à ces questions, l’objectif global étant de comprendre les tenants et aboutissants de l’interface écologie et politique.

Le MOOC sera consacré à l’étude de la pensée critique. Les enjeux de cette dernière sont déterminants pour les sociétés contemporaines. On répète qu’il faut lutter contre les préjugés, l’obscurantisme voire le fanatisme. Mais on n’apprend pas à penser, à critiquer les opinions reçues, à ne les accepter qu’après un travail personnel de réflexion et d’examen. Si bien que, face à des thèses simplificatrices, complotistes, manichéennes, nous sommes souvent dépourvus de ressources parce que nous n’avons pas véritablement appris à penser et à argumenter.
