About

Welcome to Making the Case for Nature's Influence on Human Health: Theoretical Arguments! Theories are important because they are used to explain how things in the world work. For example, Isaac Newton's law of universal gravitation started out as a theory, and after many studies, his theory became accepted as a scientific fact. This course will explore different theories that connect the natural world and its importance to human health. In particular, we will discuss three theories that have come to prominence in recent decades: Attention Restoration Theory (ART), Psycho-Evolutionary Theory (PET), and Biophilia. In each case, we will address the major components of the theory and discuss its applicability to the study of human health and natural environments.
