The Anthropocene and Political Philosophy
11 May, 2016
Oasis Common Room
Flinders University Philosophy Club
This event will feature an exciting presentation by seasoned scholar and PhD, John Tons, where he will posit an answer to the question:
“How are our social and political institutions to be arranged so that we do not unwittingly compromise our long term survival," (including the survival of other species and biosystems)?
"The Anthropocene requires that this question needs to be reframed; it requires a political philosophy that places the environment at the centre of the discussion.”
* * The Anthropocene is the period during which human activity has been the dominant influence on climate and the environment.
Come early to have a chat and a coffee before the presentation followed by question time!
We will also ask him about his involvement in setting up our inaugural club around 1970!
Coffee, tea and nibbles provided
