Abstract: A conservation and environmental ethic is in need of reconstructing more varied accounts of nature. This talk aims to introduce alternative ways to study nature through a nuanced philosophy of nature centered on the sea. Through an understanding of the Greek concept of chora, roughly translated as "receptacle," "place," "law," "country," I argue that the sea generates a distinct philosophy of nature that resembles a return to nature, which can then inform and guide conservation and environmental ethics.
