An environmental history of political ideas: epistemological and critical perspectives
Wann: Mi, 02.02.2022, 18:30 Uhr
Abstract: The planetary crisis calls for a renewed understanding of political and social ideas. Far from being totally estranged to the material world, as ecological thought sometimes suggested, modern political ideas are full of prescriptions on how the land and the territory should be managed, and those prescriptions resonate in how freedom is understood and organised. In this talk, the philosopher Pierre Charbonnier will develop some of the implications of his approach to the history of political ideas for contemporary critical thought.
The lecture is part of the CSS Lecture Series "After Sustainability. What if we stopped pretending?
