In his talk, Jamieson explains what climate change is, why we have failed to stop it, and why it still matters what we do. Jamieson argues that our failure to prevent or even to respond significantly to climate change reflects the impoverishment of our systems of practical reason, the paralysis of our politics, and the limits of our cognitive and affective capacities.
Climate change also threatens our sense of meaning, since it is difficult to believe that our individual actions matter. Yet, as Jameson points out, there is much that we can do to slow climate change, to adapt to it and restore a sense of agency while living meaningful lives in a changing world.
This event is free and open to the public. An RSVP is required.
