Module 6 | Philosophy homework help

Jim Cheney discusses an approach, central to Native American worldviews, of addressing the non-human world as an active subject to  be engaged with in dialogue, as opposed to a passive set of objects to possess knowledge and mastery over. This is linked, for Cheney, to an epistemology based more on the metaphor of “listening” than “seeing.” (As you might remember from Plato, sight tends to be Western philosophy’s primary metaphor for knowing).  Discuss this connection and reflect on some of the potential pros and cons of this approach, especially in the context of the environmental crisis faced by our current form of civilization.
