Climate policy, literature, and morality

CWRU Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities lecture by Stephen Gardiner on "Climate Policy and Wise Literature in a Perfect Moral Storm."

Ethical action on climate change is made more difficult by global, intergenerational, and theoretical challenges, and puts us at risk of moral corruption. Stephen Gardiner, Associate Professor of Philosophy at The University of Washington, proposes that literature, including the writings of novelist Jane Austen, can help us understand the threat of this "perfect moral storm."
