INTRODUCTION The deluge of environmental problems facing the world today has made it imperative that we re-examine our relationship with the environment, especially as most of these environmental problems are caused by human beings. The environmental system has continued to deteriorate owing to what many believe to be the result of over-exploitation of nature. Many would readily argue that much as man’s activities towards the environment have the survival and well-being of humans as the driving force, the environment and its non-human contents have a value of their own that needs to be upheld. It is the realization of the truism in this assertion that led to the emergence of different pro-nature or environment groups with the primary aim of conscientizing the public on the possibilities and the urgent need for establishing an ethical/morally-based relationship with the natural environment. This paper, therefore, is an exposition and appraisal of some key issues and systems/schools of thought in environmental ethics with the aim of laying bare the latent implications of these varying schools of thought vis-à-vis man and the environment. It also demonstrates that irrespective of the use the environment and its non-human contents can be to man; there is the need and the possibility of developing an ethical-based relationship with the environment.
Project writing is a basic requirement for the graduation of both undergraduate and postgraduate students of any institution of higher learning. However, having coordinated and observed numerous defense panels as a long-established academic, I have noticed the sharp decline in the performance of students in their project/research work particularly in the last decade. Essential areas of project writing such as Abstract, Introduction, Methodology, Scope of Work, Statement of Problem, Literature Review and References are almost always incorrectly or poorly written. In addition, new areas/subheadings that are irrelevant on their own—as they are already subsumed in the existing areas mentioned—are added to the project work. For instance, a sub-heading such as Limitations of the Study is subsumed in the Methodology while the Justification of the Study, another unnecessary sub-heading, is incorporated throughout the work in areas such as Introduction, Objectives, Statement of Problem and Literature Review under the disguise of the word, “Rationale”. In the light of the above, this book hopes to enlighten students on how to enhance their project work by examining the proper methods and stages of project writing and highlighting some common mistakes that students and researchers make in relation to the areas earlier mentioned. It is also important to note that while this book may prove useful to all researchers and students of the humanities, its emphasis is on historical research/project writing and as such x the examples and exercises provided are taken from the postgraduate theses of historians from the University of Calabar and some other Nigerian universities. It is, therefore, my hope that this book will, as a whole, benefit all students and researchers of humanities in Nigerian tertiary institutions.
