Lecture: The map of ebullient life: Language, reality and time in the Sixth Mass Extinction

In the face of the sixth mass extinction underway, can ethicists use the idea of species effectively? Species are often seen as fictions, leaving an unrepresentable void in ethical consciousness of our mass extinction of life. This presentation develops a context for the intrinsic value of species, understanding them as pragmatic forms holding on the scale of deep time.

Lecture by Jeremy Bendik-Keymer, Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Lemoyne College in Syracuse.

Free and open to the public.  For more information, visit www.case.edu/humanities.
